Out of the 41 patients in whom we undertook PTMC, we were able to successfully probe and enter the left atrium via the PFO in 31 patients. in all of these patients the procedure was completed satisfactory. All patients with symptomatic severe Mitral stenosis undergoing PTMC, entry into left atrium was attempted by probing persistent foramen oral with mullins sheeth loaded with Brokenborough needle. PTMC can be performed expediently and safety via PFO.
