Continuous improvement of three-dimensional echocardiography has allowed getting precise records regarding the type of anatomic injuries, mechanism and volume of regurgitation in patients with mitral insufficiency within the operation room facilities. Intraoperative three-dimensional transesophageal echocardiography has also allowed to predict the feasibility, level of complexity and efficacy of mitral valvuloplasty. The article has reported the case of repair intervention in patient with myxomatous degeneration with the use of 3-dimensional transesophageal echocardiography as a diagnostic modality
