Judes Regent series aortic valve) with total chordal preservation, left atrial reduction plasty and tricuspid commissurotomy
. Intra operative TEE revealed presence of right atrial mass (Figure 1).
Keywords: End-diastolic trans-mitral gradient, Percutaneous transvenous mitral Commissurotomy
, Mitral Stenosis.
A percutaneous balloon mitral commissurotomy
is effective for selected patients with isolated mitral valve stenosis, resulting in a rapid decrease in left atrial pressure and pulmonary arterial pressure.
Other techniques include quadrangular resection, PPM repositioning, PPM shortening, artificial chord, patching, annular sliding, chordal transferring, decalcification, height reduction, commissurotomy
, and indentation closure.
* Surgical commissurotomy
may be carried out in patients who are not good candidates for balloon valvuloplasty due to severe valve calcification.
Percutaneous transvenous mitral commissurotomy
: with or without heparin?
The current study was planned to determine the effect of percutaneous transvenous mitral commissurotomy
(PTMC) on brain natriuretic peptide (BNP) levels in mitral stenosis patients.
Objective: To know the regression of right ventricular pressure after successful percutaneous transluminalmitral commissurotomy
(PTMC) in patients with severe isolated mitral stenosis.
Endoscopic-Assisted (Through a Mini Craniotomy) Corpus Callosotomy Combined With Anterior, Hippocampal, and Posterior Commissurotomy
in LennoxGastaut Syndrome: A Pilot Study to Establish Its Safety and Efficacy.
Before technical development of transcatheter interventions, most patients with symptomatic mitral stenosis were treated with surgical mitral commissurotomy
, either open or closed .
Impact of Degree of Commissural Opening After Percutaneous Mitral Commissurotomy
on Long-Term Outcome.
Regardless of the method used, commissurotomy
has shown improvement in the ability to feed .
