Surgery During the Pregnancy

Rheumatic heart disease (RHD) continues to be endemic in developing countries like India, majority of these patients are female. In developing countries, RHD occurs in younger age group thus a small number of them present with valvular heart disease complicating pregnancy. Non obstetric mortality in pregnancy is high with heart disease. It occurs in 1% - 3% of pregnancies and accounting for 10% - 15% of maternal mortality . Common Obstetric ICU admission in no obstetric cases includes cardiac disease during pregnancy . When a woman is pregnant may develop cardiac failure due to increased cardiorespiratory requirements. This can happen in a diagnosed cardiac case or can be the first presentation of the disease. Surgery is lifesaving in patients who are symptomatic on medical management. It provides a favourable prognosis with maternal outcome though has high fetal risks. Thus, surgical treatment of heart diseases during pregnancy and puerperium is performed only in selected cases.
