Abstract

Lutembacher syndrome is defined as a combination of congenital Atrial Septal Defect (ASD) with an acquired Mitral Stenosis (MS). There are various challenges involved in the percutaneous management of Lutembacher syndrome. Here, we present a case that had a very small Left Atrium (LA) and Left Ventricle (LV) cavities with an anteriorly placed ASD. We used Transoesophageal echocardiography (TEE) to take a separate interatrial septal puncture and complete the Balloon Mitral Valvotomy (BMV) procedure. Finally both the defects in interatrial septum were closed with the help of a large device.
