Accessory mitral valve tissue is a rare congenital anomaly associated with congenital cardiac defects and is usually detected in the first decade of life. We describe the case of an 18-year old post-Senning asymptomatic patient who was found to have accessory mitral valve tissue on transthoracic echocardiography producing severe left ventricular outflow tract obstruction.

Moderate-to-severe congenital heart disease, which requires specialist cardiology care, is present in around 6/1,000 live births.1 Patients born with congenital heart defects often require surgery in early life and a consequence of this initial surgical repair is pulmonary regurgitation. The severity of pulmonary regurgitation can worsen over time and present more frequent symptoms, and may […]
