Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The echocardiographic features of mitral valvular motion in a patient with classic rheumatic mitral stenosis are presented. Two unusual features were noted, and the important of careful echocardiographic scanning of the mitral valve is imphasized. The theories for the classic echocardiographic abnormalities of mitral stenosis are briefly considered in light of the findings in this case.
