PMID:  3778009     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Accessory mitral valve tissue, a rare cause of left ventricular outflow tract obstruction, can be difficult to diagnose preoperatively and confusing even at surgery. The reported case illustrates how preoperative evaluation can be made using two-dimensional echocardiography combined with Doppler flow analysis. The intraoperative technique for removing the accessory tissue without causing damage to the native mitral valve is discussed.
