I was hoping that you can help me out here.
We only came across some bad and mostly negative info about this matter. My wife is pregnant and she is suffering from Eisenmenger Syndrome. I could feel that our doctor was having a hard time telling us how dangerous this is for both my wife and our child and that it would be wise for my wife to interrupt her pregnancy.
I hope that you could give me some positive info on this matter. If not, my wife and I will probably have to think about her getting an abortion.
I'm afraid that I can't really offer some positive info when it comes to pregnancy in a person who has Eisenmenger syndrome. In a very big percent of cases, it doesn't end up well.
If you want the correct percentage, I believe that maternal mortality in the presence of Eisenmenger's syndrome is reported to be somewhere between thirty and fifty percent and it increases further with associated complications. When it comes to fetal loss or fetal wastage, it is reported to be as high as seventy five percent.
I'm sorry that I can't give you some positive info, but this is just how things are.
Hi you two,
Whoever knows anything about Eisenmenger syndrome in pregnant women can't tell you anything good about this combination of events. I'd suggest to you and to your wife that she has an abortion and save herself and you from any further complications which are hardly going to turn out well.
Like Health n Joy said, the chances of your wife ending up dead, or your baby, are very high and there is no reason for you to risk both of their lives. You need to stop bad things from happening now when you still have time, it might be too late later.
You and your wife need to be smart, Stradivarius, and do what your doctor suggested you to do, he definitely knows what he is doing.
Look at the odds that Health n Joy wrote. Every three in four kids are lost during pregnancy in pregnant women with Eisenmenger syndrome. Not only that, but almost one woman in every two women ends up dead when she is pregnant while having Eisenmenger syndrome.
I believe that if you are clever enough, you don't need any additional info in order to make the right decision. If I was your wife, I'd go and have my abortion as soon as today.
Good, I am really sad to hear this. My wife is also having a lot of heart issues and I know what you are going through. It is very, very dangerous situation and I don’t have so many positive information about this. I am really sorry.
Doctors recommending that pregnancy should be totally AVOIDED if the lady is diagnosed with eisenmenger syndrome.
I am also sorry to tell you this but doctors also recommend to interrupt the pregnancy if she has this syndrome.
I was reading that some studies shown that 13 pregnancies in 12 women who had this syndrome needed to have abortion even if they didn’t wanted to.
Well my brother’s wife needed to have an abortion after she got pregnant during the eisenmenger syndrome. I am sorry to tell you this but you need to be aware that this can be the exactly the same scenario. You need to be prepared for this. She didn’t want to abort at all because she was sure that she can handle it. But she needed to abort in 6th month. Trust me that is a hell for everyone. Maybe it seems bad to tell you this, but better to do this on time. I am against this but…
I am sorry because I have to tell you this, but maternal mortality if the eisengenmer syndrome is present is reported to be between 30 to 50 percent and also it increases further with some other complications. Pregnancy with this condition is exceptional and fundamentally perturbs hemodynamic stability. There are a couple ways of the treatment and it varies widely and it depends on patient’s age as well. Asymptomatic patients require period evaluation with anticipation of potential needs. Surgical palliationor repair can be performed as well, but it should be performed early in patients with congenital heart disease to prevent the progression of this syndrome.
