Dencker, Magnus LU ; Jexmark, Towa LU ; Hansen, Flemming; Tydén, Patrik LU ; Roijer, Anders LU and Lührs, Carsten LU (2009) In Journal of the American Society of Echocardiography 22(9). p.5-1085
Abstract
Blood cysts within the heart are very rare entities in adults. The authors present possibly the first ever case in which blood cysts were found on both mitral valve leaflets. A 65-year-old woman was referred for transthoracic echocardiography because of vague chest discomfort. Transthoracic echocardiography displayed echo-free cysts on the tips of both mitral valve leaflets. Subsequent transesophageal echocardiography confirmed this finding. The blood cysts were successfully surgically removed.
