Precision in the diagnosis of left ventricular outflow tract obstructive lesions has become necessary within the last fifteen years* now that many of the abnormalities in this region can be improved by surgical treatment. In 195*1 Brock first relieved congenital aortic valve stenosis by a closed transventricular valvotomy and soon afterwards surgeons were operating on the aortic valve under direct vision, with the use of hypothermia to protect the body from the effects of circulatory arrest (Swan and Kortz, 1956; Lewis et al., 1956). The introduction of cardiopulmonary bypass now allows the aortic root to be exposed for prolonged periods and has brought to patients with the most complex lesions of the outflow tract the possibility of surgical correction.
