Figure 1: Patterns of commissural calcification and thickness of mitral valve leaflets. Different levels of thickening and calcification of mitral valve leaflets in short axis view. (a) Thickened and minimally calcific leaflets but the commissural lines are free of calcification indicating favorable outcome, (b) Valve thickness and calcification in transesophageal echo in the same patient, (c) Very thickened and moderately calcific valve with one commissure calcific but the other is having a thin line of calcification-free zone leading to opening of one commissures with commissural mitral regurgitation with another small jet of central mitral regurgitation (d), the other commissure didn't open
