A 23-year-old asymptomatic man was referred for cardiac evaluation. A clinical examination was normal. Transthoracic 2D echocardiography showed double-orifice mitral valve (DOMV) in parasternal short-axis view at the level of mitral valve (figure 1, video 1). Apical four-chamber view showed a normally functioning valve without stenosis and/or regurgitation (video 2). Suprasternal long-axis view showed no evidence of coarctation (video 3). Rest of the echocardiographic examination was normal.
