Abstract

Mitral valve repair is a common and preferred technique over mitral valve replacement whenever it is feasible. Transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) not only reliably identify repairable mitral valve but also guide appropriate intervention. In addition to two-dimensional (2D) TEE, the three-dimensional (3D) technique clearly delineates size and shape of mitral valve apparatus, and determine the repairability and success of repair technique. We illustrate the 2D and 3D TEE techniques that guided the surgical intervention for Alfieri repair.
