In this paper we shall review our experience with rheumatic heart disease in pregnancy and present a new analysis of the remote mortality in women having severe cardiac impairment when pregnant. The women with rheumatic heart disease in pregnancy seen at the Margaret Hague Maternity Hospital will be presented in several separate series:
1. All such patients seen in the years 1933 to 1939. This series will be used only for the derivation of the rules for management.
2. Only the patients seen in the Cardiac Clinic from January 1, 1939, to August, 1942, and from March, 1946, to date.
