Maya Guglin, Olga Kristof-Kuteyeva

Department of Cardiology, University of South Florida, Tampa, FL, USA

Today’s growing numbers of pregnant patients with congenital heart defects presents challenges for cardiologists treating adult patients. The case is presented of a 19-year-old woman who was admitted with a threatened miscarriage in the third trimester and was diagnosed with an incomplete atrioventricular canal, cleft mitral valve with severe regurgitation, and severe congenital subaortic stenosis caused by a subaortic membrane. She was managed conservatively, delivered via caesarean section, and then underwent surgical repair of all defects with good outcome. Here, a review is provided of the literature on the natural course, complications, and treatment strategies of subaortic stenosis, together with a summary of recommendations for the management of the condition.
