Figure 2: Pattern of pulsed wave-Tissue Doppler Imaging (PW-TDI) recorded at the level of the endocardial vegetation in the acute phase. Four apical chamber section. The vegetation exhibited a pattern of incoherent motion: an oscillatory movement, rapid and independent from the surrounding tissue, not related to the cardiac cycle. It was measured a peak antegrade velocity of 38.5 cm/s, about four times higher than that obtained at the lateral mitral annulus
