Three-dimensional echocardiography. New possibilities in mitral valve assessment.

Rev Esp Cardiol. 2009 Feb;62(2):188-98, PMID: 19232192

Recent developments in three-dimensional echocardiography have made it possible to obtain images in real time, without the need for off-line reconstruction. These developments have enabled the technique to become an important tool for both research and daily clinical practice. A substantial proportion of the studies carried out using three-dimensional echocardiography have focused on the mitral valve, the pathophysiology of mitral valve disease and, in particular, functional mitral regurgitation. The aims of this article were to review the contribution of three-dimensional echocardiography to understand the functional anatomy of the mitral valve and to summarize the resulting clinical applications and therapeutic implications.
