Abstract

PURPOSE: The Heart and Pregnancy Program (HPP) was created to evaluate and manage pregnant women with cardiac conditions simultaneously by cardiology and maternal-fetal medicine (MFM). The objective of our study was to describe the experience at this multidisciplinary program.

METHODS: This is a retrospective review of women managed at HPP for over 4.5 years. Subjects were compared based on indication for referral.

RESULTS: One hundred and seventy-three women were seen during the time period. Referral indications included cardiac complaints without history of cardiac disease (

CONCLUSIONS: In our collaborative cardiology/MFM practice, most pregnant women had known cardiac disease. No significant adverse outcomes were noted. Our experience provides support for creating a joint model of care for pregnant women with cardiac disease.
