Figure 1: (a) TEE (mid-esophageal long axis view) showing the mechanical prosthetic mitral valve and the regurgitant jets. The green arrowhead is pointing to the abnormal jet. (b) CW doppler across the abnormal regurgitant jet showing dense, parabolic waveform. (c) Photograph of the surgical field. The arrow is showing the rent in the aorto-mitral curtain located immediately adjacent to the sewing ring of the prosthetic valve. (d) TEE (mid-esophageal long axis view) showing the complete obliteration of the previously present abnormal regurgitant jet
