La conduite anesthésique ďune parturiente atteinte de sténose mitrale est préesentée et discuiée. En particulier on discute des effeis bénéfiques de ľanalgésic épidurale lors de ľaccouchement naturel surtout en ce qui concerne ľamélioration des paramètres hémodynamiques. Ľinformation recueillie par le cathéter de ľartère pulmonaire a contribué énormément à la conduite anesthésique chez cette patiente à trovers le travail et le puerpehum.
