Systolic anterior motion (SAM) of the mitral valve is usually seen in association with idiopathic hypertrophic subaortic stenosis (IHSS), although this finding has also been seen in patients with primary pulmonary hypertension, atrial septal defect mitral valve prolapse, left ventricular aneurysm, hypertrophic cardiomyopathy without gradient, severe aortic insufficiency, in the setting of hypovolemia with administration of pressor drugs, and in patients with d-transposition of the great arteries following mustard operation. Systolic anterior motion of the mitral valve apparatus is described in a patient who underwent mitral valve annuloplasty.
