OBJECTIVE: To review a case experience and published reports of treatment of supraventricular tachycardia with adenosine in pregnant women. DATA SOURCES: Published reports and clinical experience. DATA SYNTHESIS: Seven pregnant women with supraventricular tachycardia treated with adenosine have been described in the literature. We describe an eighth patient. Treatment has terminated the dysrhythmia in all cases, and no adverse maternal or fetal effects have been reported. CONCLUSIONS: Based on theoretical considerations and on limited published experience, adenosine appears to be safe and effective for treatment of supraventricular tachycardia in pregnant patients.
