A Case of Deflation Failure of Inoue Balloon

Abstract

We have experienced a case of deflation failure of Inoue balloon in the left atrium during mitral balloon valvuloplasty in a 44 year old male patient with tight mitral stenosis, who died just after emergency open heart surgery for removal of undeflated Inoue balloon and mitral valve replacement because of associated acute hemorrhagic myocardial infarction.
