Abstract

We report a case of isolated cleft mitral valve with two clefts in the posterior and one in the anterior leaflet. Our case adds to the few reports of posterior and multiple mitral valve clefts and to our knowledge is the first using real-time transoesophageal three-dimensional echocardiography (3DE) for assessment of isolated cleft mitral valve. (Echocardiography 2010;27:E50-E52).
