Abstract

A case of acute severe mitral insufficiency is described wherein bedside Swan‐Ganz right heart catheterization failed to establish the diagnosis. Emphasis is given to problems inherent in recording the diagnostic large dominant V‐waves with this technique, and to the necessity of resolving conflicting measurements with conventional cardiac catheterization.
