Fixed subaortic stenosis and redundant mitral valve forming subaortic chamber during ventricular systole

  • Abraham Lorber (a1), D. Itzkovitch (a1) and F. Hallon (a1)

Summary

A 43-year-old female with complaints of exertional dyspnea was found by Doppler echocardiography to have fixed subaortic stenosis and a redundant mitral valve which, during systole, formed a chamber in the left ventricular outflow tract. This resulted in a subaortic gradient of 40 mm Hg. There was also moderate aortic regurgitation.
