Functional Mitral Regurgitation: 2d and 3d-Transesophageal Echocardiography (2d and 3d-TEE)
a year ago
Transesophageal echocardiographic views ( 2D midesophageal 4 chamber view at 0 degrees and 2D midesophageal long axis view at 120-130 degrees ) and also a 3D transoesophageal view (3D-zoom) of the mitral valve from the left atrial aspect. A patient with severe mitral regurgitation (MR) due to tethering of the valve leaflets as a result of systolic left ventricular dysfunction. The patient had ischemic cardiomyopathy due to a previous posterolateral infarction. He was treated surgically with CABG and mitral valve replacement.
