A tumor mass is seen between left atrium and left ventricle, with an echo-density somewhat greater than that of the myocardium
The mass is moving in and out of plane on the parasternal long axis view and seems attached to the mitral valve
The inflow through the mitral valve is not impededThere is minimal mitral regurgitation
The mass measures around 22/18 mm Looks situated at the base of the posterior mitral valve leaflet
Anterior and apical part of posterior mitral valve leaftets seem intact
The movement of the tumor mass is concordant with the movement of mitral valve ringThe mass is not infiltrating atrial or ventricular myocardium
