Transesophageal echocardiogram (TEE) of the aortic bioprosthesis in diastole (A) and in systole (B), with transvalvular continuous-wave Doppler (C) revealing a mean gradient (MG) of 64 mmHg and a Vmax of 5 m/s. Same TEE sections and continuous-wave Doppler (A’, B’ and C’) after 1 month of anticoagulant therapy: MG = 15 mmHg and Vmax = 2.7 m/s with unchanged heart rate and ejection fraction.
