Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Recently introduced real-time 3-dimensional transesophageal echocardiography allows online accurate assessment of cardiac structures. Initial experience indicates that this new technique provides improved anatomic definition and novel views of complex cardiac abnormalities in valve anatomy. We demonstrated the utility of live 3-dimensional transesophageal echocardiography in the assisted transcatheter closure of a mitral prosthesis paravalvular leak by Amplatzer occluder.
