Severe aortic stenosis may potentiate sudden life threatening complications during pregnancy. We report a case of successful percutaneous balloon aortic valvuloplasty in a pregnant patient with severe symptomatic aortic stenosis due to congenital bicuspid aortic valve at 14 weeks' gestation. Use of percutaneous valvuloplasty allowed asymptomatic progression of the pregnancy to term and normal delivery of a healthy 2920 g infant.
