ESC Guidelines on the management of cardiovascular diseases during pregnancy

In 2011 the first guidelines with classified recommendations on the management of cardiovascular diseases during pregnancy coordinated by Prof. Vera Regitz-Zagrosek were created and published by the European Society of Cardiology (ESC). Pregnant women with heart diseases should be advised by an interdisciplinary team of gynaecologists, cardiologists and perhaps by cardiac surgeons early during pregnancy to minimize maternal and fetal mortality. Because a single doctor will be faced with such patients rarely, these guidelines are very important.

The ESC guidelines have been updated in 2018.
