We present a case where difficulty was encountered during balloon mitral valvotomy (BMV) because of severe submitral stenosis. As the orifice was 0.4 cm² at submitral level the BMV balloon catheter could not enter the left ventricle. We used a modified technique of liberating the submitral apparatus that facilitated successful BMV.
