Techniques for Interventional Catheterization Guided by Transesophageal Echocardiography

Transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) was first used clinically by anesthesiologists for intraoperative monitoring of cardiac functions. Later, intraoperative TEE has been accepted by cardiologists, cardiac surgeons, and anesthesiologists as a basic tool to evaluate the immediate hemodynamic results of a surgical procedure.1,2
