Lutembacher syndrome (LS) was first described in a letter by anatomist Johann Friedrich Meckel in Corvisart who later described the. Lutembacher’s syndrome is the combination of mitral valve stenosis and a secundum-type atrial septal defect. These can be congenital or the mitral stenosis can. Lutembacher’s syndrome, on the other hand, is characterised by decompression of the LA through the atrial septal defect (ASD). As a result, the.

The first heart sound is loud, second heart sound is widely split and fixed, a mid-diastolic murmur is heard over the apex, and ECG is showing findings of biatrial and right ventricular enlargement.

As a result, the brunt of the back pressure falls on the pulmonary vasculature, leading to high degrees of pulmonary venous and arterial hypertension.

MV calcification is absent. The transmitral gradients are low and underestimate the severity of MS. The failure of the hole between the two atria to close after birth leads to a disorder called ASD primium. Two-dimensional echocardiography with color flow Doppler establishes the diagnosis of LS.

How to cite this article: Percutaneous balloon mitral valvuloplasty by the Inoue lutembacer technique: The original descriptions of the natural history of mitral stenosis MS from developed countries noted a minimum latent period of two lutembaccher between an initial attack of rheumatic fever RF and the development of symptoms of MS [1,2].


For symptoms such as palipitations, ventricular syndroem, heart failure, and pulmonary congenstion, these symptoms may be sudden and not that frequent as they are very severe symptoms.
