Echocardiography Valvulopathy

Fig. 10. (A) Parasternal long-axis view (PLAX) and apical four-chamber view (A4C) showing a partial flail of posterior mitral valve leaflet. Note that tip of leaflet points toward the left ventricle indicating that flail is incomplete (top panels). Marked turbulence with this valvulopathy are seen on color flow Doppler examination. Note that the mitral regurgitant jet is anteriorly directed. M-mode examination shows that flail affected the posterior leaflet only. (Please see companion DVD for corresponding video.)
