Abstract

Left ventricular dysfunction due to chronic right ventricular pressure overload is well documented in experimental animals, but is controversial in humans. Whether left ventricular dysfunction resolves following the relief of chronic right ventricular pressure overload has not been studied. In this report, rapid improvement in both right and left ventricular function following successful percutaneous balloon valvuloplasty is described in a patient with severe isolated valvular pulmonic stenosis and biventricular dysfunction. It appears that: (1) geometric distortion played a major role in his reversible left ventricular dysfunction, and (2) severe biventricular dysfunction should not be a contraindication to valvuloplasty for valvular pulmonic stenosis.
