Abstract

A case of suddenly increasing dyspnea in a patient with hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy is reported. Transesophageal echocardiography showed severe mitral regurgitation secondary to ruptured chordae tendineae. Mitral valve replacement was done, correcting both mitral regurgitation and subaortic gradient. Utility of transesophageal echocardiography in diagnosis and therapeutic options are discussed.
