PMID:  8933976     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
A patient with rheumatic mitral stenosis associated with cor triatriatum is described. The anomalies were detected by two-dimensional echocardiography and confirmed by transesophageal echocardiography. Percutaneous mitral valvuloplasty was successfully performed with the inoue technique. The clinical and technical implications during the procedure of this previously unreported association are discussed.
