B) Baseline TEE 150-degree view with colour Doppler demonstrating torrential tricuspid regurgitation (TR). C) 3D TEE view demonstrating posterior leaflet flail. D) TEE 150-degree view of leaflet grasping with the MitraClip G4 XTW. E) Post-procedural TEE 150-degree view demonstrating moderate TR. F) 3D TEE view demonstrating tissue bridge and elimination of posterior flail. A: anterior leaflet; P: posterior leaflet; RA: right atrium; RV: right ventricle; S: septal leaflet.
