Hemodynamic and clinical data are presented on a patient who was found to have a reversed mitral diastolic gradient. This patient had severe aortic stenosis with only minimal aortic insufficiency. All previously reported cases occurred in patients with severe aortic insufficiency. An altered left ventricular compliance probably produced the elevation of the left ventricular diastolic pressure responsible for the reversed pressure gradient across the mitral valve.

    To assess the effect of tricuspid annuloplasty (TAP), the authors measured the size of the liver by using echography in the patients undergoing tricuspid annuloplasty. From April 1989 to August 1996,18 patients underwent TAP. The authors measured preoperatively and postoperatively the hepatic...
