Development of MI during pregnancy is considered a rare event which is life-threatening for both mother and fetus. Patients of this cohort are not included into randomized clinical studies and, therefore, description of clinical cases presently remains the major source of information on this issue. Several issues primarily related with selecting an efficient strategy for managing pregnant patients with MI and safety of revascularization are still not completely solved. This article describes a clinical case of acute ST elevation MI at 23 weeks of gestation. Major current aspects of managing patients with this disease as well as unsolved and controversial issues of diagnostic and treatment of pregnant patients with MI are presented.
