Abstract

No single monitoring tool in the last decade has had more of an effect on intraoperative decision making and surgical management of cardiac valvular pathologies than has TEE. It has become the standard of care for evaluating reparative valvular procedures, thus providing an immediate gauge of the surgical results and helping to avoid suboptimal surgical outcomes. As the technology of TEE and its application advance, so too should the ability to diagnose and manage valvular pathologies, broaden the range of surgical options, and ultimately improve patient outcomes.
