Abstract: Balloon mitral valvotomy (BMV) is a standard procedure for relief of severe mitral valve stenosis in eligible patients when mitral valve is pliable.This study retrospective ly evaluated the success rates and periprocedure complications of BMV in severe mitral stenosis. 49 patients of mitral stenosis screened out of which 21 were eligible for the study. BMV was successfully completed in all 21 patients. Complication occurred in 1 patient of mild pericardial effusion. No other complication developed. This study suggests that BMV is a relatively safe procedure with a very less complication rate if done by experienced.
