For paper delivered by Manly Stallworth for Smithy, ""figure 5 - Showing the valvulotome within the mitral valve. As the instrument is withdrawn, the cutting surfaces are opened and allowed to impinge on the anterior margin of the stenotic valve. Closure of the cutting surfaces causes excision of a portion of the valve which is held within the telescoping mechanism of the instrument.""
