Purpose of investigation: The aim of this study was to evaluate lower limb circulation during vascular occlusion in patients undergoing cesarean section with total placenta previa. Materials and Methods: Two pregnant women with total placenta previa underwent regional oxygen saturation (rSO2) monitoring in the lower limb, using near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) during cesarean section with common iliac artery balloon occlusion(CIABO). Results: There was no decrease in rSO2 during balloon inflation and after balloon inflation in the two patients. Conclusion: The authors found that it is possible to evaluate limb ischemia by balloon occlusion in real-time using NIRS to measure regional oxygen saturation.
