Abstract

Twenty-nine patients with moderate mitral stenosis and 29 age-matched normal controls underwent symptom-limited upright bicycle exercise testing with simultaneous hemodynamic monitoring. Exercise tolerance in the mitral stenosis group was found to be limited by inadequate cardiac output reserve and not by resting mitral valve area or exercise pulmonary capillary wedge pressure.
