Abstract

Multiplane transoesophageal echocardiography enabled components of the mitral valve to be examined systematically, and provided important information on the pathophysiological mechanism of mitral regurgitation before surgical repair. The method also allowed the surgical outcome to be assessed, offering the possibility of optimal repair.
