Received 4 December 2017; received in revised form 21 December 2017; accepted 28 December 2017 Keywords: Mitral regurgitation � Bioprosthesis leaﬂet detachment Figure 1: A 79-year-old woman, who underwent mitral valve replacement with a 27-mm Carpentier–Edwards Perimount Magna mitral pericardial bioprosthesis (Edwards Lifesciences, Irvine, CA, USA) 9 years ago, was referred to us because of progressive dyspnoea. Echocardiography images showed large central jet mitral valve regurgitation (A and B). Surgery revealed an unsewn bioprosthesis leaﬂet (L1) and secondary leaﬂet prolapse [prosthesis ventricular aspect (C) and auricular aspect (D)]. Asterisk indicates left ventricular outﬂow tract bioprosthesis-marked references. The Author(s) 2018.
