Abstract

The spontaneous contrast echo (SCE) is a phenomenon that the contrast effect appears spontaneously on 2D-echocardiography without intravenous contrast material. This appears when hemostasis is in the cardiac cavity and the tendency for thrombosis formation may be increased. The SCE can be observed in the patient with severe mitral stenosis, postprosthetic valvular replacement or left ventricular enlargement. We report 4 cases of SCE on two-dimensional echocardiogram in the patient with severe mitral & aortic valvular disease.
