Abstract
Intraoperative echocardiography in patients undergoing cardiac surgery was first described in 1972. Interest in intraoperative echocardiography has grown in recent years due to the extensive information provided by 2-dimensional (2-D) and color-flow Doppler imaging via the transesophageal approach. The value of this technique also has been verified in large clinical studies involving patients undergoing cardiac surgery. Intraoperative transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) is very useful in preoperative formulation of surgical plans and in immediate post-operative assessment of surgical results in patients undergoing valve surgery.
