Abstract

The submitral apparatus may play a predominant role in rheumatic mitral stenosis and should be evaluated aggressively with Doppler echocardiography, especially in patients in whom percutaneous mitral balloon valvotomy is being considered. The following case presents a patient with rheumatic mitral valve stenosis in whom some noninvasive clues alerted us to the presence of predominant submitral stenosis.
