Transesophageal Echocardiography: The View of a Cardiologist

  • J. R. T. C. Roelandt
Conference paper


Although this article is subtitled “The view of a cardiologist,” it actually represents the pooled experience of a group of investigators at the Thoraxcenter in Rotterdam. We have kept references to a minimum, including only those we feel are key references, as this paper is part of a collection reflecting the current state of the art.
