Abstract

Percutaneous transvenous mitral commissurotomy (PTMC) has emerged as an alternative to closed mitral volvotomy for selected symptomatic patients of mitral stenosis. 191 patients underwent PTMC at Cardiology department, PGMI Peshawar. Acute haemodynamic results showed fall of left atrial pressure from 25.27+ 5.2 to 10.22 + 4.7 mmHg, mitral valve gradient decreased from 19.5 + 4 to 7.22+ 3.6mmHg, pulmonary artery pressure fell from 57.85 + 8 to 41.7 + 9 mmHg. The result are comparable to other international reports, complications rate was similar to other major studies. PTMC is a safe and effective tool to dilate selected stenosed mitral valve.
