Dr. Romi Bansal, Dr. Priyanka, Dr. Harbhajan Shergill, Dr. Aastha

Abstract


Pregnancy is associated with signicant cardiovascular changes which result in hemodynamic burden leading to
increased morbidity and even mortality in women with cardiac disease. Risk during pregnancy is dependent upon the type
and severity of valvular abnormality, NYHA functional status, left ventricular function and pulmonary pressure. We report a case of 21 years old
unbooked primigravida with gestational age of 28 weeks 3 days, known case of valvular heart disease. Patient was managed conservatively by a
team of obstetrician, cardiologist and physician. She had preterm vaginal delivery at 30 weeks without any complication. Early diagnosis of heart
disease, regular antenatal checkup, institutional delivery and multidisciplinary approach can reduce the maternal and perinatal morbidity and
mortality.
