Double orifice in prolapsing mitral valve.

PMID:  8282443     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
A prolapsing mitral valve with a double orifice ('hole type') was documented by echocardiography in a 35-year-old male. His symptoms were associated to supraventricular ectopic beats and persisted unchanged during a 3-year follow-up. This malformation is usually considered benign but, as fragmentation of the atrioventricular conduction tissue was reported in some cases, a periodic observation is advisable.
