In women with Turner syndrome, the risk of death from aortic dissection or rupture during pregnancy may be 2%, and this risk persists during the postpartum period owing to pregnancy-related aortic changes. Turner syndrome is a relative contraindication for pregnancy; however, it is an absolute contraindication for pregnancy in a patient with a documented cardiac anomaly. This document replaces the 2008 document of the same name.
