Multiple beats are shown in this clip and the image does not remain still because the patient was severely dyspneic. The patient has significant hypertrophy of the anterioseptal wall of the left ventricle. In multiple cardiac cycles the anterior mitral leaflet can be seen to impinge on the left ventricular outflow tract.
