Pulmonary artery (PA) aneurysm is a very rare disease. Surgical treatment is important in symptomatic patients. Due to its anatomical condition, the rupture of such aneurysms may lead to sudden right ventricular failure or sudden death. The aim of this report is to present the use of balanced general anaesthesia management in a patient who underwent PA aneurysm repair surgery. Surgical repair was planned in a 55-year-old man with chest and back pain as well as haemoptysis. With the help of balanced anaesthesia, stress on the aneurysm wall was prevented by avoiding sudden blood pressure increases. With appropriate ventilation methods, we attempted to avoid an increase in pulmonary vascular resistance, and therefore, the pressure on the aneurysm, as well as an increase in the postoperative right ventricle. With the help of appropriate anaesthesia and ventilation techniques, uncomplicated and successful anaesthetic management was effected in the repair of a PA aneurysm.
