We report the case of a 61-year-old woman referred to our center for cardiac evaluation after a syncope, with echocardiographic findings of a papillary fibroelastoma on the edge of the non-coronary aortic cusp. The three-dimensional transesophageal approach provided a unique understanding of the size and shape of the mass and it favorably directed the surgeon towards treatment with conservative surgery.
