Percutaneous treatment during pregnancy

Patrizia Presbitero, Giacomo Giovanni Boccuzzi

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Cardiac conditions that need percutaneous intervention during pregnancy are very rare because usually they are diagnosed and treated before pregnancy. However, as a result of the hemodynamic changes (Fig. 19.1) and hypercoagulability state of pregnancy, some previously undiagnosed conditions can be unmasked or can rapidly deteriorate even in previously stable women.
