3D echo mitral valve reconstruction – validity of a novel software application

3D echocardiographic reconstruction of the mitral valve may optimise mitral surgery planning and potentially identifies patient-valve mismatch. The aim of this pilot study was to validate a novel 3D echo mitral reconstruction software allowing measurements of mitral structures by subsequent comparison to implanted prosthetic mitral valves or annuloplasty rings.
