About Video

This video clip demonstrates a transthoracic echocardiographic apical four-chamber view of this patient with a prosthetic mitral valve. As is evident in this movie, transthoracic echo can be limited in the diagnosis of prosthetic valve thrombosis given acoustic shadowing of the left atrium and poor image quality. (LA = left atrium; LV = left ventricle; RA = right atrium; RV = right ventricle).
