Abstract

Cardiac ultrasound is a useful diagnostic modality for the evaluation of cardiac masses and tumors. However, normal cardiac structures and normal variants can mimic masses with both transthoracic echocardiography and transesophageal echocardiography. We report two patients in whom a redundant mitral leaflet simulated cardiac tumor attached to the mitral valve by transesophageal echocardiography.
