Supplementary material

Video 1. A transthoracic echocardiogram showed a 15x17 mm lobulated, mobile cystic mass, attached to the ventricular side of the anterior mitral leaflet (AVI 19,2MB)

Video 2. Color imaging shows mitral regurgitation (AVI 8,81MB)

Video 3. Continuous wave doppler imaging confirms mitral regurgitation (25,6MB)

Video 4. Mitral blood cyst is seen by transesophageal echocardiography (AVI 10,6MB)

Video 5. Mitral regurgitation is seen by transesophageal echocardiography (AVI 5,4MB)
