Abstract

Background: The use of intraoperative transesophageal echocardiography (iTEE) in neonates ≤4kg has not been systematically described. We sought to describe the use of and determine risk factors for iTEE probe insertion failure in small infants. We also sought to develop an algorithm for predicting the likelihood of iTEE probe insertion failure. Design: A retrospective chart review of all neonates ≤4kg who underwent cardiac surgery at our institution from 12/2001 to 12/2006 was performed. Patients who underwent operations that did not typically require TEE were excluded. Risk factors for TEE probe insertion failure were assessed. Results: Of 310 neonates who met the inclusion criteria, 219 (70%) underwent successful iTEE. Lower weight (P
