Abstract

PENA-DUQUE, Marco Antonio et al. Intracardiac ultrasound-guided percutaneous mitral valvuloplasty. Arch. Cardiol. Méx. [online]. 2011, vol.81, n.1, pp. 26-28. ISSN 1405-9940.

Intracardiac echocardiography (ICE) is a relatively new method of ultrasound images useful during cardiac percutaneous interventional procedures. The first human experience with this method was published in 2000 and, since then, several original trials have enrolled this useful method, proving similar and more useful than transesophageal echocardiography in percutaneous treatment of several congenital cardiopathies, like interatrial communication, permeable oval foramen, mitral stenosis, and atrial fibrillation ablation. In this presentation, we publish a single case report of percutaneous mitral valvuloplasty under ICE guidance.

Keywords : Mitral stenosis; Percutaneous mitral valvuloplasty; Intracardiac echocardiography; Mexico.
