Abstract

We found a coexistence of Mahaim fibers, coarctation of aorta and bicuspid valve in a young patient presenting with palpitations and subraventricular tachycardia. This rare combination of these three congenital cardiac abnormalities occurring in the same patient has not been reported previously. Detailed cardiac studies unmasked the patient's cardiac abnormalities. Furthermore, successful percutaneous intervention in treating coarctation and catheter-based ablation of Mahaim fibers were performed with resolution of symptoms. This case is discussed here in detail, alongside a review of the literature.
