Abstract

A 65-year-old man presented with acute decompensated heart failure. He was found to have severe prosthetic aortic valve regurgitation caused by a fractured strut of a sutureless prosthetic aortic valve that embolized to the distal portion of the aorta. We highlight the importance of multimodality imaging in diagnosis and management. (Level of Difficulty: Intermediate.)
