Abstract

In females, the immobility of the cilia in the fallopian tube may cause barrenness. Pregnancy does not affect the frequency and severity of existing bronchitis, bronchiectasia and bronchial asthma caused by primary ciliary dyskinesia. There is an increased risk of premature delivery in patients with Kartagener syndrome. Since assisted reproduction is often used, the risk of multiple gestations is higher. Along with multiple gestation comes the increased risk of premature delivery, not only because of the presence of multiple fetuses and uterine stretching, but also because the increased size of the uterus presses against the already poorly functioning maternal lungs and can lead to infection and early rupture of the membranes. In cases where a cesarean section becomes necessary, it is very important to use the appropriate analgetic method, which is regional or spinal anesthesia. Special attention should be given to avoid potential difficulties caused by maternal bronchial asthma and situs inversus. In spite of the repeated pulmonary diseases of varying severity which are caused by the Kartagener's syndrome, even a twin pregnancy may be carried through to birth, provided there is a close working relationship between the doctor and the patient.
