Umbilical cord prolapse is a rare obstetric emergency that requires an expeditious delivery for fetal survival. This serious obstetrical emergency is unfamiliar to many physicians although it represents an acute emergency with high mortality. We have experienced a woman with umbilical cord prolapse and prolonged fetal heart rate deceleration who underwent an emergent cesarean section under use of propofol and the neonate survived with resuscitation when there were no anesthesiologist and pediatrician. There were no adverse outcomes on the woman and neonate.
Key Words: Umbilical cord prolapse, Emergent cesarean section, Prolonged fetal deceleration, Propofol
