Thanks for comment!

We made this TEE-vid for about 2 weeks.
Actually we made a new TEE-evaluation: that structure is still there;
no change in echocardiagraphic view. I think it is a "old"
vegetation.
Thanks a lot!

Description

about 80 y old patient with congestive heart failure and sepsis with pulmonary focus (gram-stain: gram-positive cluster coccal). In TEE we found a floating structure an posterior leaf of mital valve. not typical for active endocarditis. What could it be? We thought it could be a residual of a former endocarditis or a calcified residual of tendon of papillary muscle. What do you think?
