A transthoracic parasternal short axis view showing a multicystic mass adjacent to the left ventricle (L vent).
 
On the left side, a mass with a mostly cystic component at the caudal part and adjacent to the great vessels and the left ventricle is seen (a, b and c). The mass begins from the level of the aortic arch (a) and descends to the bottom of the left ventricle (c). It invades the cranial part of the left ventricular anterior and lateral wall, anterolateral part of left atrial wall and the left atrial appendage, and extends to the front of the main pulmonary artery outlet and the left ventricle anteromedially, the main pulmonary artery, the root of the aorta and the right atrium crossing under the main pulmonary artery anteromedially, and the space under the main carina and the left main bronchus.
