Brief introduction of heart disease during pregnancy

Pregnancy complicated with heart disease is a serious obstetric complication and the main cause of maternal death, with an incidence rate of 0.5-1.5%. Due to pregnancy, uterus enlargement and blood volume increase, which increases the burden on the heart. During childbirth, the contraction of uterus and whole body skeletal muscle makes a large amount of blood rush to the heart, and the increase of postpartum circulating blood volume is easy to cause heart failure in the diseased heart. Pregnancy complicated with heart disease, pregnancy induced hypertension syndrome and postpartum hemorrhage are the three major causes of maternal death. Pregnancy complicated with heart disease, rheumatic heart disease is the most common, accounting for about 80%, especially mitral stenosis, which is a serious pregnancy complication, and maternal death accounts for the second place in China. At the same time, due to long-term chronic hypoxia, fetal intrauterine dysplasia and fetal distress are caused. Clinically, pregnancy complicated with rheumatic heart disease is more common, and there are congenital, pregnancy induced hypertension heart disease, perinatal cardiomyopathy, anemia heart disease and so on. Whether patients with heart disease can safely pass pregnancy and childbirth depends on heart function, so we must attach great importance to this disease.
