[Transesophageal echocardiography assessment of regurgitant jets of eccentric geometry in mitral valve prosthesis: superiority of multiplanar sections over standard sections].

OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to determine whether multiplanar (MP) transesophageal echocardiographic views were superior to standard views (ST) at 0 degree and 90 degrees in the evaluation of mitral prosthesis regurgitation (MR), particularly in presence of wall regurgitant jets. DESIGN Comparison between MP and ST views in the evaluation of… (More)
