The use of intraoperative transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) in assessment of the mitral valve repair is well established. It has significantly contributed to the excellent results of mitral valvuloplasty in the current era. This article reviews various two-dimensional echocardiographic planes to assess the mitral valve apparatus, mechanisms of mitral regurgitation, different surgical techniques of repair, complications, and their recognition using TEE.
