Transesophageal echcardiography

A Ender, S Eibel, E Hasheminejad, M Scholz, U X Kaisers, C Mukherjee, J Ender
BACKGROUND: Comprehensive intraoperative transesophageal echcardiography (TEE) includes various measurements for quantification of cardiac chambers and valves based on multiple two dimensional (2D) standard views. Due to shortness of time during cardiac surgery most centres in Germany only carry out problem focussed intraoperative examinations which does not allow the complete repertoire of measurements to be exhausted. The aim of this study was to investigate which measurements for cardiac chamber and valve quantification can be performed with the acquisition of a real-time 3D full volume (RT-3D-FV) data set and to compare these measurements with those based on standard 2D views...

BACKGROUND: Complex anatomy of intra-cardiac structures requires spatial orientation of image in three dimensions for better understanding and enhanced image interpretation. We evaluated the feasibility and efficacy of the emerging 'real-time three-dimensional transthoracic echocardiography' technique for comprehensive assessment of cardiac anatomy, physiology, pathomorphology and pathophysiology in patients with structural heart disease. METHODS AND RESULTS: Patients with structural heart disease (n=152) were evaluated by conventional two-dimensional transthoracic echocardiography and real-time three-dimensional transthoracic echocardiography using standard protocol...
