Abstract

Visualization of thromboembolic material in the pulmonary artery is often difficult on transesophageal echocardiography, especially in the left pulmonary artery, because of the position of the left main bronchus. We present a case in which thromboembolic material within the midleft pulmonary artery was incidentally diagnosed using additional, modified transesophageal echocardiography views, in a patient undergoing mitral valve repair.
