Resumen

CORDOVA, Samuel; GONZALES, Rodrigo  y  ZALAQUETT, Ricardo. Foreing body mitral valve insufficiency. Rev Chil Cardiol [online]. 2015, vol.34, n.1, pp.63-65. ISSN 0718-8560.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-85602015000100008.

A 21 year-old man presented with a 3-month history of progressive dyspnea . He had undergone transventricular aortic valvuloplasty at age 3 months and at age 10 months a Konno operation with implantation of a 17- St Jude prosthesis. In 2006, at age 16 years-old, he was reoperated due to subvalvular stenosis. A Konno amplification with bovine pericardiumwas was performed and the 17-St Jude valve replaced by a size 23 valve. Transesophagueal ecocardiography showed severe peri-prosthetic aortic regurgitation and a catheter entering the left atrium through the right superior pulmonary vein toward the mitral valve (Fig 1-A, arrows). The anterior leaflet and the subvalvular apparatus were retracted around the catheter, causing moderate mitral regurgitation (Fig 1-B, arrow). At surgery, echocardiography findings were confirmed, the catheter being completely adhered to the anterior leaflet, chordae tendinae and papillary muscle, as can be seen in the surgical specimen (Fig 1-C and D, arrows). The Konno was reconstructed with Dacron and the mitral valve replaced with a 27-St Jude prosthesis. At last follow-up, the patient was asymptomatic.

Palabras clave : mitral insufficiency; foreign body; cardiac surgery.
