Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Pregnancy is badly tolerated in patients with Eisenmenger's syndrome; maternal mortality with coherent fetal morbidity is high. Even with the advancement of both obstetric and anesthetic managements, the maternal mortality still exceeds 25%. Once conception occurs in patients of Eisenmenger's syndrome with severe pulmonary hypertension, interruption of pregnancy is still the best manipulation to be recommended. We report two cases of parturients with Eisenmenger's syndrome, who underwent termination of pregnancy. In this report, the obstetric and anesthetic management of this kind of parturients with Eisenmenger's syndrome has been thoroughly discussed.
