Four cases of pregnancies in two women with tricuspid atresia (TA) are described. A review of the literature on this subject revealed 24 reported cases of which only 11 were reported in detail. Eight pregnancies resulted in deliveries (including our 3 cases). TA is still uncommon in adult patients, but due to successful palliative surgery in childhood more patients now reach the age of fertility. Guidelines about the management of these patients are discussed. © 1989.
