BACKGROUND: Surgical open or closed mitral commisurotomy and percutaneous transluminal mitral commissurotomy (PTMC) are the well-established therapies in patients with mitral valve stenosis. However, due to various factors the long-term effects may not be optimal in some patients, so they should undergo surgical mitral valve replacement. AIM: The intra-operative assessment of the morphology of mitral valve and the evaluation of the peri-operative results of surgical treatment in patients with mitral valve disease who previously underwent closed surgical commissurotomy followed by PTMC. METHODS: Twenty one patients (20 males, mean age 49 years) who underwent surgery due to mitral valve disease after closed mitral commissurotomy and PTMC, are presented. The time from closed mitral commissurotomy to PTMC was 3-42 years, and the time from PTMC to mitral valve replacement - 9 days to almost 9 years. RESULTS: One patient died on the second day after the operation because of left ventricular failure. The outcome of the remaining patients was good. Advanced changes of the mitral valve and subvalvular apparatus were present in the majority of patients. CONCLUSIONS: The results of the implantation of mitral valve prosthesis in patients who previously underwent closed surgical mitral commissurotomy and PTMC are good. In some patients with a history of closed surgical mitral commissurotomy, PTMC delays surgical replacement of the mitral valve. Advanced changes in the mitral valve leaflets and subvalvular apparatus are the causes of PTMC failure.
