Abstract

The aim of the study was to evaluate the additional diagnostic value of real-time 3-dimensional transesophageal echocardiography (RT3D-TEE) for surgically recognized mitral valve (MV) prolapse anatomy compared to 2-dimensional transthoracic echocardiography (2D-TTE), 2D-transesophageal echocardiography (2D-TEE), and real-time 3D-transthoracic echocardiography (RT3D-TTE). We preoperatively analyzed 222 consecutive patients undergoing repair for prolapse-related mitral regurgitation using RT3D-TEE, 2D-TEE, RT3D-TTE, and 2D-TTE. Multiplanar reconstruction was added to volume-rendered RT3D-TEE for quantitative prolapse recognition. The echocardiographic data were compared to the surgical findings. Per-patient analysis of RT3D-TEE identified prolapse in 204 patients more accurately (92%) than 2D-TEE (78%), RT3D-TTE (80%), and 2D-TTE (54%). Even among those 60 patients with complex prolapse (>1 segment localization or commissural lesions), RT3D-TEE correctly identified 58 (96.5%) compared to 42 (70%), 31 (52%), and 21 (35%) detected by 2D-TEE, RT3D-TTE, and 2D-TTE (p <0.0001). Multiplanar reconstruction enabled RT3D-TEE to differentiate dominant (
