While the CARPREG study included both acquired and CHD, the more recent ZAHARA predictors were developed based on a population of CHD patients. 6 The predictors included history of arrhythmia, baseline NYHA class III-IV, left heart obstruction, mechanical valve prosthesis, moderate-to-severe atrioventricular valve regurgitation, moderate-to-severe subpulmonary atrioventricular valve regurgitation, use of cardiac medication prior to pregnancy, and repaired or unrepaired cyanotic heart disease.
