Özet

Background Valvular heart disease constitutes the majority of all causes of cardiac disease in pregnancy. The significant physiological haemodynamic changes of pregnancy may cause serious cardiac problems leading to severe maternal and foetal morbidity and mortality. In this study, we evaluate the effect of maternal rheumatic valvular disease requiring definitive operation concurrent with caesarian delivery on maternal and foetal outcome.
