- atrial fibrillation;
We present two cases of successful cardioversion of atrial fibrillation using intravenous ibutilide during pregnancy. One patient had atrial fibrillation, complicating the Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome and the other had a history of nonobstructive hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. No adverse maternal or fetal effects were observed during or after pregnancy in either case.
