Intraoperative real-time three-dimensional transesophageal echocardiography has been shown useful in the evaluation of the mitral valve (MV) apparatus, and dedicated commercial software allows its quantitative assessment. The aims of this study were to (1) quantify the effects induced by prolapse on MV anatomy in the presence of fibroelastic deficiency (FED) or Barlow's disease (BD), (2) assess the effect of surgery on the MV apparatus, and (3) investigate the potential role of three-dimensional transesophageal echocardiography in surgical planning.

Abstract

Intraoperative real-time three-dimensional transesophageal echocardiography has been shown useful in the evaluation of the mitral valve (MV) apparatus, and dedicated commercial software allows its quantitative assessment. The aims of this study were to (1) quantify the effects induced by prolapse on MV anatomy in the presence of fibroelastic deficiency (FED) or Barlow's disease (BD), (2) assess the effect of surgery on the MV apparatus, and (3) investigate the potential role of three-dimensional transesophageal echocardiography in surgical planning.
