Figure 3: (a and d) Transesophageal examination revealing the perforation of the anterior mitral leaflet where it made contact with the proximal edge of the CoreValve stent. Two filamentous structures are present on both edges of the perforation (yellow arrows). (b and c) Color Doppler interrogation showing the presence of a large intraleaflet regurgitant jet from left ventricular outflow tract to left atrium (yellow arrows). Another second interleaflet regurgitant jet is present (white arrows)
