Figure 1. Imaging following unsuccessful Carillon device implantation. A) Transoesophageal echocardiography (TEE) at baseline, post Carillon implantation (post implant) and at nine-month follow-up (9-mo FU). B) Tracking the Carillon device (yellow line). C) MVA to Carillon device planes showing localisation of the device superior to the MVA. D) Aortic root (yellow line); AVP: aortic valve prosthesis; CS: coronary sinus (blue line); MVA: mitral valve annulus (red line). E) Left: topographical model indicating a Carillon device to MVA distance of 10.1 mm and a Carillon device to MVA angle of 18.3°. Right: AVP: aortic valve prosthesis, Carillon device plane vector (blue ...
