Outcome of cardiovascular surgery and pregnancy: a systematic review of the period 1984-1996 - Zurich Open Repository and Archive


Weiss, B M; von Segesser, L K; Alon, E; Seifert, Burkhardt; Turina, M I (1998). Outcome of cardiovascular surgery and pregnancy: a systematic review of the period 1984-1996. American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology, 179(6 Pt 1):1643-1653.

Abstract

The outcomes of cardiovascular operations during pregnancy, at delivery, and post partum were reviewed from published material in the period 1984-1996. Surgery during pregnancy resulted in fetal-neonatal morbidity and mortality of 9% and 30%, respectively, and in maternal morbidity and mortality of 24% and 6%, respectively. Duration of pregnancy at surgery and duration and temperature of cardiopulmonary bypass did not influence fetal-neonatal outcome. Maternal complications and mortality of surgery immediately after delivery were 29% and 12%, respectively, and for surgery performed with a postpartum interval the respective rates were 38% and 14%. Hospitalization after week 27 of gestation and extreme emergency contributed significantly to poor maternal outcome. Maternal deaths were reported in 9% of valvular procedures and in 22% of aortic or arterial dissection repairs and pulmonary embolectomies. Fetal-neonatal risks of maternal surgery during pregnancy are high and unpredictable. Maternal risks of cardiovascular procedures during pregnancy are moderate, significantly increase if an operation is performed at or after delivery, and, overall, should be considered as higher than those in nonpregnant cardiovascular surgical patients.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
