Brief Answer: terminate after stabilizing the patient Detailed Answer: Hi, Thank you for choosing Healthcaremagic. Considering her history and low ejection fraction it is advisable not to continue the pregnancy due to risk of maternal death, there is a high risk of overt heart failure occurring during pregnancy, irreversible deterioration in ventricular function, and fetal loss. Pregnancy should be terminated after stabilizing the patient. Please ask if you have more questions. If you are satisfied, please make sure that your ACCEPT my answer so that I receive credit.
