Two-dimensional transoesophageal echocardiography two-chamber view showing mobile thrombus developed on the atrial side of the prosthesis with a diastolic movement within the prosthesis without obstruction. Normal motion of the prosthetic leaflets during diastole can be observed (WMV 546 kb)

Real-time three-dimensional transoesophageal echocardiography showing the presence of a circular thrombus like a crown protruding between the prosthesis leaflets and the sewing ring (WMV 773 kb)
