Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Percutaneous mitral valvuloplasty (PMV) produces good results for symptomatic mitral stenosis or restenosis if valve morphology is suitable. However, complications such as atrial septal defect have severe hemodynamic effects, and repeat PMV is not always appropriate. The patient in this case had already undergone multiple PMVs and was a candidate for valve replacement.
