4-D TEE of a Mechanical Mitral Valve and ASD Repair

This short cine loop shows a 3-D/4-D transesophegeal echo (TEE) view of a transcatheter Amplatzer closure device used to seal an atrial septal defect (ASD) and the operation of a surgically implanted St. Jude Medical mechanical mitral valve. This type of complex ASD transcatheter repair is much easier to perform under real-time 3-D TEE guidance. This image was provided by GE Healthcare's Vivid E9 Breakthrough 2012 (BT12), which includes a 4-D transducer for TEE.
