A 33-year-old woman who had aortic valve replacement (AVR) because of infective endocarditis 2 years ago was referred to us with orthopnea and a new heart murmur. An aortic ring abscess and a mitral valve aneurysm were detected by transthoracic and transesophageal echocardiography. Abnormal flow through the aortic ring between the aorta and the left atrium was shown by color Doppler echocardiography. The condition was diagnosed as prosthetic valve endocarditis and was treated using the re-AVR translocation method (AVR translocated in the supracoronary area) (Carbo Medics, 23 mm) and mitral valve repeacement (Carbo Medics, 29 mm). Changes in size and number of aortic root abscesses after surgery were closely monitored by transthoracic and transesophageal echocardiography, which provides comprehensive infoemation about complex infective lesions.
