It is still not clear which precise lesions should not be placed in this category. For example, is an "isolated" cleft of the mitral valve or a perimembranous inlet ventricular septal defect to be so described? It is also not fully accepted that the left atrioventricular valve in these lesions bears little resemblance to a morphologically… CONTINUE READING
