Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Balloon mitral valvotomy is a commonly performed procedure for mitral stenosis. This procedure can lead to complications such as left ventricular perforation with tamponade, mitral regurgitation and stroke. Here we report a case of left ventricular pseudoaneurysm following balloon mitral valvotomy. It was a consequence of adherent pericardium secondary to open mitral valvotomy performed earlier. It was surgically corrected by pseudoaneurysm repair and mitral valve replacement. We believe that this is the first such reported case.
