Doctor Gives Hope To Pregnant Women With Heart Condition
Dr. Dianne Zwicke coaches ob/gyns through providing care to the highest-risk of obstetric patients: those with pulmonary hypertension. With a maternal mortality rate of 40-60%, most women are advised to immediately abort. But Zwicke has seen 40 patients and their babies safely through. By conventional medical wisdom, between 16 and 24 of her patients (and all of their unborn babies) should have died. Zwicke's management has saved between 56 and 64 lives.
