A successful cesarean section performed in a 24-year-old woman with rheumatic heart disease and a Starr-Edwards mitral valve prosthesis is reported. In the 33rd week of pregnancy, previous warfarin sodium therapy was discontinued and dipyridamole therapy instituted. Successful pregnancy and cesarean section in patients with mitral valve prostheses are possible with this regimen.
