Abstract

Pulmonary hypertension (PH) is a rare condition with a high incidence of maternal and perinatal mortality (30–56% and 10–13%, respectively). Pulmonary hypertension is a contraindication to pregnancy because of high risk of maternal death, therefore the World Health Organisation (WHO) advises to discuss a termination in the event of pregnancy with women suffering from PH.
