Abstract

An instance of open heart surgery for aortic valve replacement in the 31st week of pregnancy is reported. The precipitating event was an episode of subacute bacterial endocarditis secondary to drug abuse. The literature is reviewed and recommendations are made for the preoperative and intraoperative management of the maternal-fetal unit. In view of recent reports and technical advancements, cardiac surgery is an acceptable and sometimes preferable alternative to medical management of antepartum cardiac disease.
