A case of double mitral valve orifice associated with atrioventricular canal was found at operation. These two anomalies are frequently associated. Double mitral valve Is usually subclinical and does not necessarily need to be corrected, depending on the associated anomalies, the extent of the defect, and the personal experience of the surgeon. The embryology of double mitral valve is complicated and still needs to be clarified.

    The article discusses the anatomy of hearts with double inlet ventricle. Double inlet ventricle exists when the larger part of both atrioventricular junctions is supported by the same ventricular chamber. The atrioventricular junctions can be guarded by two separate valves or by a common valve....

    Cardiac conduction abnormalities and/or atrioventricular (AV) block have been reported as one of the most frequent complications of transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI). The impairment of AV conduction was resulted from the balloon and valve-induced injury. Patients with right bundle...
