MVR and AVR.
Heart size normal.
Dual left sided valve replacements.
The film is useful as it helps illustrate the differences in the MVR an AVR is terms of:
1. Position of the valve ( AVR tends to be more medially over the spine )
2. Orientation of the valve ( MVR is more en-face so diameter of valve better seen )
3. Size of the valve diameter ( MVR is larger than the AVR )
