Abstract

We report the first morphologic analysis of a linear mobile structure (strand) detected by transesophageal echocardiography on a bioprosthetic mitral valve and then recovered at surgery. Electron microscopy showed it to consist of a sparsely cellular component, with extracellular amorphous or fibrillary areas. Collagen was largely responsible for the fibrillary appearance.
