Description

In this TTE zoom view of the aortic/mitral valves in the parasternal long axis with color doppler, you can see dramatic aortic insufficiency. Even more worriseome is the aorta, seen just behind the left atrium. Note that the circular structure has a linear density across it, which is a dissection flap and the cause of this patient\s acute aortic insufficiency.
