Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Eisenmenger complex is a congenital heart disease, which causes considerable maternal mortality. Data from the literature suggest a maternal mortality of 26%, with an infant survival of 57%. We describe a successful pregnancy and vaginal delivery of a woman with Eisenmenger complex and discuss the problems associated with Eisenmenger complex and pregnancy.
