Mitral stenosis (MS) is a progressively disabling disease for which until 1984 open surgery was the only cure. Introduction of percutaneous transvenous mitral commissurotomy (PTMC) by Inoue in 1984 for the treatment of selected MS patients has transformed the treatment of MS. Other names for PTMC include percutaneous balloon mitral valvotomy (PBMV) or valvuloplasty. The decision of PTMC is based on the clinical presentation and imaging study results.
