Pregnancy after valve replacement.

PMID:  8055769     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Two patients who had mitral valve replacement presented during the second trimester of pregnancy. Both had uneventful pregnancies ending in normal delivery of healthy female babies. Though patients who are haemodynamically stable tolerate pregnancy well, because of the substantial risks of anticoagulant therapy, it is prudent to advise against pregnancy after valve replacement.
