Subaortic stenosis missed by invasive hemodynamic assessment

Academic Article


  • We present a case of 61-year-old man that was evaluated for possible aortic stenosis but did not show a left ventricular outflow gradient on invasive assessment in the catheterization laboratory. Transthoracic echocardiography showed subaortic stenosis secondary to a discrete membranous structure in the left ventricular outflow tract. This is the first case in the literature of a patient with discrete subaortic stenosis missed by invasive hemodynamic assessment. © 2008, the Authors.
