Background and Purpose: We present a case report of a patient of the American Society of Anesthesiologists’ (ASA) IV scheduled for a modified radical mastectomy (MRM) due to malignant disease. The patient was a high risk patient for general anesthesia and we opted for the application of unilateral paravertebral block on several levels. Case report. A 86-year-old female was scheduled for a surgery due to recurrent malignant process on her right breast. She was an ASA IV patient with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD GOLD A), respiratory failure, diabetes mellitus, diabetic nephropathy, cirrhosis and chronic laryngitis. Echocardiography showed diastolic ...
