PMID:  10616238     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Multiplane transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) is useful in providing a detailed anatomic map for successful mitral valve repair. This report describes an approach, developed over the past two to three years, which helps to delineate valve anatomy in specific detail. Mid-esophageal views are selected to view different segments of the valve leaflets. When correlated with surgical anatomy, this approach is found to be both practical and useful.
