Chest pain during labor can have many etiologies, one of which is myocardial ischemia. We report a 38-year-old woman with American Society of Anesthesiology physical status I scheduled for elective cesarean delivery who experienced chest pain and electrocardiographic signs of myocardial ischemia immediately after carbetocin administration. Subsequent investigations revealed an aberrant right coronary artery originating from the left coronary sinus coursing between the aorta and the pulmonary artery. This was considered the likely cause of the patient’s chest pain. The patient gave written permission for the authors to publish this report.
