Endokarditis - Diagnose - TEE
Figure 1: Apical transthoracic 5 chamber view from a 59 year old male with fever, non-Hodgkin lymphoma and an echogenic mass, mobile in real time, at the base of the posterior leaflet of the mitral valve (m). This could be classified as a positive echocardiogram and a major Duke criteria for the diagnosis of IE (see text)

Endokarditis - Diagnose - TEE
Figure 2: Systolic frame from a 4 chamber transesophageal echocardiographic study in a patient with chronic renal failure and haemodyalisis. The unexpected oscillating mass on the submitral apparatus (arrows: left 2D, right M-mode derived echocardiogram) is consistent with vegetation (see text). LA = left atrium; LV = left ventricle.

Endokarditis - Diagnose - TEE
Figure 3: Transthoracic modified 4 chamber apical view in a patient with a mitral mechanical prosthetic valve, where the disease was only evident on the ventricular side of the valve itself (large arrow), which was masking its presence by the transoesophageal approach. The two small arrows indicate a spontaneous echo contrast small diastolic jet through the stenotic prosthetic valve, due to ingrowing tissue (see text). LV = left ventricle

Endokarditis - Diagnose - TEE
Figure 4: Two short axis transoesophageal views, 15 days apart, from an elderly patient with calcific aortic valve and infective endocarditis. In the first examination (top) a vegetation could not be identified since the echogenic nodularities were indistinguishable from fibrocalcific deposits (arrow). In the second examination (bottom) a vegetation was diagnosed on the aortic valve for the evident increase in size of one of the nodularities (arrow) which was still not mobile in real time (see text). A= aortic valve; LA= left atrium
