Comparative Study Between Echocardiographic and Catheterization Findings in Patients with Rheumatic Mitral Stenosis

Mehrnoush Toufan and Laleh Shahsar

Abstract:
We conducted this study to compare the difference and relations of echocardiography and conventional cardiac catheterization results in hemodynamic assessment of patients with MS. A retrospective, cross-sectional and comparative study was conducted on 166 patients with severe rheumatic MS admitted in Tabriz Shahid Madani Heart Center from 2003 to 2005 for percutaneous transvenous mitral commissurotomy (PTMC). All patients underwent simultaneous trans-thorasic echocardiography (TTE), trans-esophageal echocardiography (TEE) and catheterization and PTMC on the same day. There are significant correlations between TEE, TTE and catheterization findings in patients with rheumatic mitral stenosis. We found both echocardiographic and catheterization data suitable for clinical decision making for management of patients with rheumatic mitral stenosis.
