Organic heart disease is still one of the main causes of maternal and fetal mortality. The outcome of pregnancy in 110 patients with organic heart disease ranging from class I to IV (New York Heart Association Classification) was studied. The incidence of intrauterine growth retardation in the study group was examined with regard to severity of the disease. Birth weight was compared to that in a matched control group, and no statistically significant difference between the two groups was found.
