Perimortem cesarean delivery in a pregnant patient with goiter, preeclampsia, and morbid obesity
A A Case Rep
Cardiopulmonary arrest during pregnancy is a devastating event necessitating rapid intervention from experienced practitioners to reduce the incidence and severity of adverse maternal and fetal outcomes. Perimortem cesarean delivery is rarely performed within the recommended time frame to meet these goals. We describe a case of a successful perimortem cesarean delivery after the "4-minute rule" in a morbidly obese parturient with goiter and preeclampsia.
