INTRODUCTION: Aortic dissection is a life threatening disease and is usually accompanied by a high rate of mortality and morbidity. Here we present a case report in which intraoperative tranesophageal echocardiography was used for intraoperative assessments of thoracic aortic dissection due to cocaine abuse. CASE PRESENTATION: A 45- year- old male was admitted to a university hospital due to severe chest pain. He was suffering from severe excruciating chest pain that had started after a psychological stress, leading to heavy cocaine abuse...

Percutaneous closure of an atrial septal defect (ASD) has emerged as an alternative to surgery. A 54-yearold woman with a history of percutaneous ASD closure with a 30-mm Cardia Ultrasept septal occluder (Cardia Inc., Eagan, MN, USA) comprising 2 discs made of Nitinol wire mesh covered with polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) membrane, was admitted to the hospital with unstable angina pectoris. In a routine examination, transthoracic echocardiography revealed a left-to-right shunt through the device. Transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) also demonstrated significant left-to-right shunt through the central portion of the prosthesis...

Percutaneous closure of an atrial septal defect in the cardiac catheterization laboratory requires noninvasive imaging to assist in characterization of the atrial septal defect and deployment of the device. Transesophageal echocardiography is the modality most often used in these circumstances. Transesophageal echocardiographic guidelines exist for the assessment and guidance for atrial septal defect closures, but these guidelines do not mention transgastric views. In this case, we demonstrate that transgastric views are helpful in describing the atrial septal defect, especially as it concerns the inferior vena cava rim...

Left atrial appendage (LAA) closure prevents thromboembolic risk and avoids lifelong anticoagulation due to atrial fibrillation (AF). Nowadays, AtriClip, a modern epicardial device approved in June 2010, allows external and safe closure of LAA in patients undergoing cardiac surgery during other open-chest cardiac surgical procedures. Such a surgical approach and its epicardial deployment differentiates LAA closure with AtriClip from percutaneous closure techniques such as Watchman (Boston Scientific, Marlborough, MA, USA), Lariat (SentreHEART Inc...

Transcatheter closure of atrial septal defects and patent foramen ovale has become increasingly common with advances in device and imaging technology. The percutaneous approach is now the preferred method of closure when anatomically suitable. Two-dimensional and 3-dimensional echocardiography determines anatomic suitability by characterizing the interatrial defect and its surrounding structures, and is critical for intraprocedural guidance and postprocedure follow-up. This article provides an overview of interatrial anatomy as it pertains to interventional considerations and discusses the transthoracic, transesophageal, and intracardiac echocardiographic modalities used for periprocedural and intraprocedural imaging of the interatrial septum...

Once deemed benign, patent foramen ovale (PFO)-mediated right-to-left shunting has now been linked to stroke, migraine, and hypoxemia. Contrast transesophageal echocardiography is considered the standard technique for identifying a PFO, allowing visualization of the atrial septal anatomy and differentiation from non-PFO right-to-left shunts. Transthoracic echocardiography is the most common method for PFO imaging, being cost-effective, but has the lowest sensitivity. Transcranial Doppler is highly sensitive but is unable to differentiate cardiac from pulmonary shunts; it is the best method to quantitate shunt severity, being more sensitive than transthoracic or transesophageal echocardiography so is our preferred screening method for PFO...

Background and purpose Previous studies have suggested that atrial septal aneurysm is a potential risk factor for cerebral embolism. However, the association between the level of atrial septal protrusion and cerebral embolism is still unclear. The purpose of the present study was to assess the association between the maximal distance of atrial septal protrusion and cryptogenic stroke. Methods A total of 588 consecutive acute ischemic stroke patients (70 ± 11 (mean ± SD) years, 401 men) who underwent transesophageal echocardiography were enrolled...

INTRODUCTION: Transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) is a well-established method of evaluating cardiac pathology. It has many advantages over transthoracic echocardiography (TTE), including the ability to image the heart during active cardiopulmonary resuscitation. This prospective simulation study aims to evaluate the ability of emergency medicine (EM) residents to learn TEE image acquisition techniques and demonstrate those techniques to identify common pathologic causes of cardiac arrest...

Background Retrograde embolism from the descending thoracic aorta is one possible cause of undetermined ischemic stroke. Significant aortic regurgitation can increase the amount of reversed flow in the thoracic aorta and thus is associated with an increased incidence of stroke. Aims This study aimed to examine the association between significant aortic regurgitation and undetermined embolic infarction with aortic complex plaques. Methods This study included 380 patients with undetermined embolic stroke who did not have abnormal flow such as atrial septal defect, patent foramen ovale determined by agitated saline bubble test, intracardiac thrombi on transesophageal echocardiography, atrial fibrillation, or small vessel stroke, cerebral artery, and carotid stenosis on the brain magnetic resonance imaging...

OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study was to compare the efficacy and safety of intracardiac echocardiography (ICE) from the left atrium (LA) with transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) for procedural guidance of transcatheter left atrial appendage occlusion (LAAO). BACKGROUND: TEE with general anesthesia is the current gold standard to guide LAAO. By the use of ICE from the LA, LAAO can be performed in local anesthesia and may potentially have advantages over TEE. METHODS: A single-center, cohort study of patients undergoing LAAO with the Amplatzer Cardiac Plug or Amulet (St...

Cardiac computed tomography (CT) provides additional information with ultrasound in the transcatheter heart valve (THV) size selection. However, the influence of these incremental data on outcomes has not been evaluated in a randomized study. A single-center prospective, randomized, and open study was performed. Patients referred for transfemoral transcatheter aortic valve implantation with a balloon-expandable endoprothesis were included. THV size selection was performed using either transthoracic and transesophageal echocardiography data (control group) or ultrasound and CT results (CT group)...

Alongside these visual descriptions, the historical overview of surgical and percutaneous mitral valve intervention is described with the special emphasis on the incremental value of 3D transesophageal echocardiography (3DTEE). For each mitral valve intervention, 2D echocardiography, chest x-ray, and fluoroscopy images corresponding to 3DTEE are given...

Upper gastrointestinal injury associated with cryoablation and under placement of transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) during cardiac surgery is a rare complication but potentially fatal. During the cryoablation for the treatment of atrial fibrillation, delivered cryoenergy can adversely affect the esophagus, resulting in gastroesophageal ulceration. The TEE probe itself also can induce adverse effects like esophageal ulceration or perforation. In this case report, we describe a case of emergent gastroesophageal injury with massive bleeding that occurred after manipulation of a TEE probe during cryoablation therapy in a cardiac surgery patient...

Pathologies of the right heart and the tricuspid valve were not recognized to be of prognostic relevance for many years. Available evidence showing the progressive nature of right heart diseases with direct impact on patient survival have changed current understanding of its clinical importance. Visualization and a profound understanding of the right heart anatomy are prerequisites for the development of modern and still experimental treatment strategies. Transthoracic and transesophageal echocardiography enable a standardized and clear visualization and assessment of the right heart anatomy and its pathological changes...
