Abstract

We report a case of a 37 year old man, with history of rhabdomyosarcoma as a child. Patient developed severe dilated cardiomyopathy secondary to the treatment of the cancer. He presented for resection of the small bowel. An intra-aortic balloon pump (IABP) was placed preoperatively for mechanical cardiac support. A combined general/epidural technique was used for the surgery. Transesophageal echocardiogram (TEE) was used to monitor patients cardiac status intraoperatively. Patient remained hemodynamically stable and tolerated the procedure well.
