Atrial flutter or atrial fibrillation occurred infrequently in a large prospective registry of pregnant women with structural heart disease, but was associated with increased risk for maternal mortality and fetal complications in a recent analysis.
The researchers evaluated 1,321 pregnant women from 60 hospitals in 28 countries enrolled in the European Registry of Pregnancy and Cardiac Disease between January 2008 and June 2011. All participants had cardiomyopathy or congenital, valvular or ischemic heart disease. Incidence of AF or atrial flutter was evaluated during pregnancy.
