Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The efficacy, safety and applicability of Inoue balloon technique for BMV are clearly established worldwide in selected subset of patients with rheumatic mitral stenosis (MS). However, in altered cardiac anatomy it offers technical challenges. Distorted cardiac anatomy and cardiac malpositions considerably increase the complications involved in interatrial septal puncture and left ventricular entry during BMV. There are only a few reports worldwide on successful BMV in altered cardiac anatomy using the standard Inoue technique. Here we describe a case of a 27-year-old female with situs inversus and dextrocardia, where BMV was successfully performed with a few modifications of the standard Inoue technique previously described in similar patients.
