Commissural and paracommissural fibrocalcific dystrophy represent sites of greater resistance that hinder commissural splitting, leading to delivery of the balloon pressure to the relatively thin AML and causing it to tear because the posterior mitral leaflet is fibrosed and rolled up most of the time8.
Fibrous plaques were characterized by homogeneous, signal-rich regions; fibrocalcific plaques by signal-poor regions with sharp borders; and lipid-rich plaques by signal-poor regions with diffuse borders (Figure 2, A through F).

The study disclosed aneurysmal dilatation of the proximal and mid segments of the right coronary artery (RCA), along with large, proximal fibrocalcific plaques resulting in high grade luminal obstruction.
The fibrocalcific nodules found on the chest radiograph imply that either 1) the patient might have had histoplasmosis for years and it became disseminated because of immunosuppressive therapy for rheumatoid arthritis or 2) the patient was reinfected with the calcified lesions that resulted from prior histoplasmosis.
