Figure 2 : 

Mitroaortic infective endocarditis explored by two-dimensional (2D) and three-dimensional (3D) transoesophageal echocardiography (TEE). The 2D TEE (A) shows destruction of the cusps of the aortic valve with vegetations (white arrow) and perforation of the basal portion of the anterior leaflet (red arrow), resulting in severe mitral regurgitation visualized by colour Doppler (B). The 3D TEE allows better localization of the mitral perforation thanks to an atrial ‘en face’ view (C) and a left ventricle view (D).
