Abstract: Prosthetic heart valve obstruction is a severe and potentially fatal complication. We present a patient with a Bjork-Shiley prosthetic mitral and aortic valve implantation and recurrent pulmonary edema. Echocardiogram showed a rate-dependent "obstruction alternans" of the prosthetic mitral valve due to pannus formation. (Ann Thorac Surg 2009;88:996-8) (C) 2009 by The Society of Thoracic Surgeons
