We report a case of flail mitral valve in an elderly man. Contrast enhanced images of the left ventricle were compared with transthoracic echocardiography. MSCT during systolic phase accurately identified the flail P2 cusp of posterior mitral valve leaflet. It can be performed non-invasively without requiring sophisticated software. Our case suggests that… CONTINUE READING
