Objective: To discuss the management in a subset of patients with severe mitral valve disease having calcified, nonpliable valves not suitable for percutaneous balloon mitral valvuloplasty during pregnancy, presenting with Stage III–IV of the clinical classification of New York Heart Association. Methods: Patients with nonpliable valves presenting with heart failure in pregnancy at advanced gestation were planned for simultaneous cesarean section followed by mitral valve replacement. Results: All patients underwent successful surgery with good maternal and neonatal outcome. Conclusion: Patients with severe mitral valvular disease in failure in pregnancy, who are at high risk of mortality in pregnancy or during and following delivery, benefit from combined surgery.
