|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.
