Pregnancy increases body blood volume and cardiac output. These changes can exacerbate mitral stenosis symptoms. Symptomatic mitral stenosis during pregnancy has been successfully treated with percutaneous mitral valvuloplasty (PMV). We present the case of a 35-year-old white female who developed cardiogenic shock due to severe mitral stenosis at the 22nd week of gestation and it was successfully treated with emergent PMV. This case illustrates the ability of PMV to be life-saving in such extreme conditions.
