Abstract

Perioperative Transesophageal Echocardiography (TEE) is used in the diagnosis of cardiac diseases. It was first introduced to diagnose cardiac valvular myocardium and pericardial diseases. But it has multiple applications beyond diagnosis. Cardio- logists are increasingly working closely with experi- enced echocardiographers in complex patient cases, and many cardiologists handle all their cases with the use of TEE. TEE is used during the operation and post-operatively in the ICU for monitoring the patient. It may be needed in cases of perioperative cardiac aortic surgery and during the postoperative period.
