PMID:  20818969     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
OBJECTIVE: We report the case of a 46-year-old woman presenting with acute chest pain in the 20th week of a twin pregnancy after oocyte donation.
CASE REPORT: The Patient's medical history comprised several cardiovascular risk factors, such as hypertension, obesity, hypercholesterolemia, smoking, and a positive family history. After diagnosis of myocardial infarction, coronary catheterization and stenting was performed. Ten weeks later, Cesarean was indicated because of severe superimposed preeclampsia with lung edema. Mother and babies recovered uneventfully.
CONCLUSION: In respect to increasing rates of higher maternal age and obesity during pregnancy, more attention to maternal health is required, particularly in programs for assisted reproductive techniques.
