Dr. Sarah Shahnaz.S | Dr. C. G. Raghuram [9] | Dr. Chandrakala [6]

Abstract: A case of amyloidosis of cardiac origin along with mitral valve prolapse in a young patient is a rare phenomenon. It poses a challenge to the anesthesiologist when they present for noncardiac surgery under emergency. We discuss a case of a young patient with a prosthetic mitral valve, on anticoagulants, posted for an emergency laparoscopic /open cholecystectomy and its anaesthetic management.

Keywords: cardiac amyloidosis, mitral valve prolapse, prosthetic mitral valve, laparoscopic cholecystectomy
