Overview

Intra-operative transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) is a mature imaging technique which represents the premier surgical quality control instrument in the contemporary operating room. In adult cardiac surgery, management of valvular heart disease and related structural cardiac abnormalities derive the most benefit from perioperative echocardiography which includes pre-operative transthoracic echocardiography, intra-operative TEE, and post-surgical echocardiographic surveillance. This echo tutorial delivers a comprehensive review of current state-of-the-art IOTEE practice, highlighting the importance of cardiac anatomy knowledge, mechanisms of valvular dysfunction, and development of communication skills between the echocardiographer and surgeon.

Objectives

  • Describe the importance of pre-surgical transthoracic echocardiography
  • Identify critical information to be obtained during the  general pre-bypass and post-bypass IOTEE examination
  • Describe surgical mechanisms of aortic and mitral regurgitation
  • Identify basics of surgical mitral and aortic valve repair techniques and the role of IOTEE in their planning and evaluation
  • Integrate 3D IOTEE into clinical practice
  • Identify basics of surgical treatment modalities for ascending aorta and root repair and the role of IOTEE in their planning and evaluation
  • Describe a comprehensive IOTEE assessment of the mitral valve
  • Identify normal and abnormal prosthesis function by IOTEE
  • Describe surgical techniques and IOTEE planning and evaluation of septal myectomy
  • Integrate an anatomic map of perivalvular leak location communication with the surgeon
  • Recognize the importance of physiologic hemodynamics when evaluating valvular surgery post-bypass
  • Describe basic IOTEE imaging considerations in LVAD surgery
