Eisenmenger's syndrome consists of high pulmonary vascular resistance with reversed or bidirectional shunt at aortopulmonary, ventricular or atrial level. We describe the anaesthetic management of two adult females with Eisenmenger's syndrome admitted for laparoscopic cholecystectomy. One patient suffered post-operative complications, but the other case was uncomplicated. We used sevoflurane and total intravenous anaesthesia to provide general anaesthesia. Both techniques were tolerated.
