• Echocardiographic findings in a 53-year-old man with aortic dissection are described. A redundant intimal flap obscured the normal aortic valve leaflets. Systolic and diastolic motion of the flap resembled that of an abnormal aortic valve. Findings in this patient suggest that the intimal flap may mimic the motion and appearance of adjacent cardiac structures.
