Thoracic epidural anesthesia for elective laparoscopic myomectomy is a good alternative to general anesthesia and seems to be an effective technique, with minimal hemodynamic consequences and excellent patient satisfaction and no postoperative complications (provided the patient cooperated), minimal inflation pressure, and mild table tilt. We present here one case of laparoscopic myomectomy under thoracic epidural anesthesia in a patient with relative contraindication to general anesthesia.
