This report describes three-dimensional transesophageal echocardiographic findings in three consecutive patients with discrete subaortic stenosis. The discrete subaortic stenosis lesions included a circumferential, a remnant crescent, and a broken fibrotic subaortic membrane. The lesions were best imaged by using a three-dimensional transesophageal echocardiography-generated "aortotomy view" of the left ventricular outflow tract immediately below the plane of the aortic valve. The three… CONTINUE READING
