Abstract

Color transesophageal Doppler echocardiography (TEE) has made real-time, on-line, beat by beat study of intracardiac events possible without the inconvenience of having a probe in the operative field. The use of transesophageal probes is on the increase and in 1988, at least in our heart center, we hardly used epicardial probes for intraoperative evaluation.
