Kon and Associates reported that a good exposure of the mitral valve and its subvalvular
apparatus was obtained by superior trans-septal approach.
Wilkins score was obtained by adding the score for each of the individual morphological features as, leaflets mobility, thickness, calcification and subvalvular
Key words: foot clenching, cardiac outflow obstruction, subvalvular
disease, congenital heart disease, atherosclerosis, bird, avian, Moluccan cockatoo, Cacatua moluccensis
5 cm2 (Clase I Nivel A), o en pacientes asintomaticos con area valvular mitral menor de 1 cm2 (Clase II Nivel A), si la anatomia es susceptible de intervencion percutanea, es decir, si la valvula conserva su movilidad, las hojas son delgadas, el aparato subvalvular
esta integro y relativamente libre de calcificaciones (1).
aneurysm of the left ventricle.
Native pericardial patch plasty was done with interrupted suture technique at annular area, subvalvular
on right ventricular side and continous suture technique at common atrial level and cleft repair with interrupted suture technique of the left atriovenricular valve.
LV outflow tract obstruction was defined as a subvalvular
gradient >30 mmHg at rest .
The rheumatic process leads to inflammation, resulting in commissural fusion, thickening and fibrosis of both the leaflets and subvalvular
With ongoing contributions of nonmyocardial tissues from the second heart field and from neural crest cells these outflow tract components transform to form intrapericardial trunks, arterial roots, and subvalvular
ventricular outflow tracts, respectively, in the postnatal heart.
In recent years some surgeons use ePTFE suture to create artificial chords, a subvalvular
structure of the mitral valve.
Her medical record review revealed a transthoracic echocardiogram two months prior to admission that documented mild mitralregurgitation, moderate mitral valve stenosis and a thickened valvular and subvalvular
mitral apparatus with restricted motion of the posterior leaflet.
En la exploracion los sintomas pueden simular una estenosis aortica, estenosis subvalvular
o una miocardiopatia hipertrofica.
