Further patient selection relies heavily on transthoracic and transoesophageal echocardiographic findings, which provide structural information about the mitral valve and subvalvar apparatus. A scoring system for predicting outcomes is commonly used to screen potential candidates. Four characteristics (valve mobility, leaflet thickening, subvalvar thickening, and calcification) are each graded 1 to 4. Patients with a score of <8 are more likely to have to have a good result than those with scores of > 8.
Note the difference between left ventricular peak pressure and aortic peak pressure, which represents the left ventricular outflow tract gradient, has been reduced from 80 mm Hg to 9 mm Hg Septal defect closure Atrial septal defects Atrial septal defects are congenital abnormalities characterised by a structural deficiency of the atrial septum and account for about 10% of all congenital cardiac disease. The commonest atrial septal defects affect the ostium secundum (in the fossa ovalis), and most are suitable for transcatheter closure.
