For the perioperative management of pregnant pa tients with prosthetic valve thrombosis who require a cardiac surgical procedure and cardiopulmonary bypass, the well-being of both the mother and the fe tus must be considered. The best interests of the mother and the fetus may not coincide, and optimal therapy for one may be inappropriate for the other. Between 1991 and 1996, we operated two pregnant patients who had prosthetic valve thrombosis. One baby died intrauterine, and the other was borned with cesarean section before cardiac operation. Both of the mothers recovered uneventfully.
