|Title:||Response of different grades of pulmonary artery hypertension to balloon mitral valvuloplasty|
|Publisher:||AMERICAN JOURNAL OF CARDIOLOGY|
|Citation:||AMERICAN JOURNAL OF CARDIOLOGY. 90; 10; 1170-+|
|Abstract:||Patients with mitral stenosis and severe pulmonary artery hypertension, initially have a worse clinical and hemodynamic profile, more severe disease processes, and a higher restenosis rate. Despite the use of a larger balloon, a smaller valve area with higher gradients and residual pressures occurs. For optimal symptomatic and hemodynamic benefit, early balloon mitral valvuloplasty is indicated.|
