Successful balloon mitral valvotomy in rheumatic mitral stenosis with Ebstein's anomaly.

Abstract

The association of Ebstein's anomaly of tricuspid valve with rheumatic mitral stenosis is extremely rare. The case is presented of a young female who had been admitted with progressive dyspnea secondary to severe rheumatic mitral stenosis with moderate pulmonary hypertension, along with Ebstein's anomaly of tricuspid valve. The patient underwent successful balloon mitral valvotomy, using the Inoue technique, with a marked improvement in her symptoms.
