Authors:

The success of developments in heart transplantation has given women recipients the opportunity to have children. The first successful pregnancy in a patient who had received a heart transplant was reported by Lowenstein et al. in 1988.1 The cardiovascular effects of pregnancy demonstrate the durability of transplanted hearts. We report a successful pregnancy in a 20-year-old patient who had previously had a heart transplant; we also discuss the management of such patients.
