Özet

BECAUSE OF INCREASES in cardiac output and intravascular volume that occur in pregnancy, previously asymptomatic structural heart disease in women will often cause symptoms for the first time or present with worsening symptoms. In this report, the authors describe a woman at 28 weeks gestation, presenting with acute heart failure, who was noted to have severe mitral stenosis and underwent emergency mitral valve replacement.
