In this chapter, cases of mitral leaflets prolapse, flail, annulus calcification, rheumatic heart disease, and systolic anterior motion received mitral repair or replacement are presented.
The TEE assessment always begins with a systematic 2D examination of the MV regardless of the type of the disease. 3D en face view from LA down to the MV can mirror the surgeon’s view and express the MV structure and function carefully. In addition, evaluation of repair in the operating room before chest closure allows further intervention if required therefore improves the outcome.
