Liver transplantation (LT) has been widely performed and has become the treatment of choice in patients with medically non-treatable liver disorders. With surgical and medical advancements, LT recipients are now able to live a near-to-normal life. Pregnancy has also become possible in female LT patients. However, there are still several potential risk factors that must be considered in these particular patients. LT patients have a higher risk of anesthesia and are at high risk for delivering babies with prematurity and low birth weight. We report a case of successful spinal anesthesia in a 31-year-old LT patient for cesarean section.
