Figure 1: Upper panel: Parasternal long-axis view; Middle panel: Parasternal short-axis view; Lower panel: A4C view. Rheumatic mitral stenosis: Typical doming of pliable anterior mitral leaflet, fish mouth orifice, dilated left atrium with doming leaflets. Congenital mitral stenosis: Anterior mitral leaflet domes with eccentric location of orifice, Bulging interatrial septum to right; both leaflets attached to single-papillary muscle. Degenerative mitral stenosis: Dense calcification with restricted opening, spared commissures from calcification; dilated left atrium
