Supramitral ­ring, ­also ­known as mem­bra­nous supra­val­vu­lar ­mitral sten­o­sis is a ­rare ­cause of con­gen­i­tal ­mitral sten­o­sis, ­with ­less ­than 100 cas­es appear­ing in ­the lit­er­a­ture ­since ­its ­first descrip­tion in 1902. We ­present a ­small ­series encoun­tered at ­the uni­ver­sity med­i­cal cen­ter dur­ing ­the ­last ­five ­years. The nat­u­ral his­to­ry of ­the con­di­tion is ­reviewed ­along ­with diag­nos­tic ­tools, ­aspects of sur­gi­cal ­repair, ­and anes­thet­ic tech­nique ­that facil­i­tates ear­ly extu­ba­tion ­and ­ICU dis­charge.
