The dismal prognosis of dilated cardiomyopathy and its resulting tachyarrhythmias has recently been improved by technical advances such as the automatic implantable cardioverter defibrillator. We report a successful pregnancy in a patient with chronic cardiomyopathy and malignant tachyarrhythmias necessitating use of this device, with a documented defibrillator discharge and monitored fetal response.
