Spinal anesthesia has many benefits for you undergoing a cesarean section. Regarding your PSVT, it is safe to choose spinal anesthesia. I have anesthetised a number of patients with PSVT using spinal anesthesia and there have been no episodes of PSVT.

Welcome to HCM,
As you have got some cardiac problem it is advisable to go for spinal anesthesia.
Now a days they go for Epidural injection.
Off course they will go for physician's opinion before Cesarean section.
Ok and bye.
