Abstract

Maternal heart disease complicates at least 1% of pregnancies and is one of the most important causes of maternal death. In developing countries rheumatic heart disease remains the major cause of maternal heart disease, while in developed countries maternal congenital heart disease has become more prevalent due to the improved survival of children with congenital heart disease. In addition, the prevalence of coronary artery disease is rising because of unhealthy lifestyle and the tendency to postpone motherhood until the third decade.
