Cardiovascular changes following lumbar spine surgeries in the prone position have been less commonly described. Here, we report a case of an elderly male patient undergoing lumbar spine decompression and transforaminal interbody fusion who developed multiple but transient episodes of hypotension and bradycardia. Anesthesiologist should be vigilant while monitoring such patients and should use invasive blood pressure monitoring if possible, so as to detect transient cardiovascular episodes which may progress and results in a dreadful outcome.
