A woman pregnant for 21 weeks underwent an emergency operation because of an aortic arch aneurysm that had ruptured into her left lung. Cardiopulmonary bypass and deep hypothermia were used and she needed 37 minutes of circulatory arrest at a core temperature of 19 degrees C. Both the mother and fetus survived, and a normal baby was delivered by cesarean section at the 39th week of gestation.
