Supplementary Material

Transesophageal echocardiogram. Short-axis view demonstrates a large aortic regurgitant jet, as suggested by the orange doppler signal over the non-coronary cusp during diastole (Supplementary Material 1). Cardiac gated computed tomography with a reformated four-chamber view shows how the oblique regurgitant jet (not visualized) from the aortic valve leads to asymmetric motion of the bileaflet mechanical mitral valve (Supplementary Material 2).
