Subaortic stenosis usually occurs without a previous heart operation, however, it can occur after heart surgery as well, with a condition known as a secondary subaortic stenosis (SSS). SSS has been reported after surgical repair of several congenital heart defects. There are only a few recorded cases of SSS after repair of ventricular septal defect (VSD). Here we report a rare case of SSS that occurred 3 years after surgical repair of subarterial VSD. A follow-up echocardiogram is essential for detecting SSS caused by the newly developed subaortic membrane in patients who had cardiac surgery.
