Doppler

Caution: When attempting to rule out significant mitral regurgitation in a prosthetic mitral valve, you must remember that the prosthetic valve will "mask" the mitral regurgitation from the Doppler ultrasound due to the high acoustic impedance difference between the valve and blood. Multiple views and transesophageal echocardiography will overcome the problem of masking.
