- Hemodynamic monitoring using a single-use indwelling transesophageal echocardiography probe in an unstable patient after open-heart surgery. Begot, Emmanuelle; Clavel, Marc; Piccardo, Alessandro; Bellier, Rémi; François, Bruno; Pichon, Nicolas; Vignon, Philippe // BMC Medical Imaging;Aug2015, Vol. 15 Issue 1, p1
Background: Hemodynamic monitoring is frequently needed in ventilated patients with unstable hemodynamics after open-heart surgery. Novel miniaturized single-use transesophageal echocardiographic probe has been scarcely used in this clinical setting. Case presentation: A patient who underwent a...

Editorial. Discusses a report in the February 9, 1995 issue of the `New England Journal of Medicine,' by Smith, et al, on the use of transesophageal echocardiography in the diagnosis of traumatic disruption of the thoracic aorta.
- Use of transesophageal echocardiography. Apgar, Barbara // American Family Physician;1/1/1997, Vol. 55 Issue 1, p309
Summarizes a study by M.F. Warner and K.I. Momah, in the 1996 issue of the periodical `Archives of Internal Medicine' volume 156, that analyzed 106 patients who underwent transesophageal echocardiography for the evaluation of a cerebral ischemic event. Background on the study; Findings of the...
- The relationship between superior vena cava diameter and collapsibility and central venous pressure. Cowie, B. S.; Kluger, R.; Rex, S.; Missant, C. // Anaesthesia & Intensive Care;2015, Vol. 43 Issue 3, p357
The aim of this study was to assess the relationship between superior vena cava (SVC) diameter, collapsibility and central venous pressure (CVP) in cardiac surgical patients. SVC maximum and minimum diameters, plus collapsibility with ventilation, were measured with transoesophageal...
- Performing Cardioversion: Dabigatran Therapy vs. Warfarin. DiMarco, John P. // Clinical Cardiology Alert;Mar2011, Vol. 30 Issue 3, p19
In this article the author discusses the randomized evaluation of long-term anticoagulation therapy (RE-LY) trial, which reported that both dabigatran and warfarin are effective in patients with atrial fibrillation (AF) undergoing cardioversion. He comments on the implications of the study's...
- Transesophageal Echocardiography: A New View of the Heart. Fisher, Edward A.; Goldman, Martin E. // Annals of Internal Medicine;7/15/90, Vol. 113 Issue 2, p91
Editorial. Presents information on transesophageal echocardiography. Details of how transesophageal echocardiography is done; Nonoperative and operative indications for transesophageal echocardiography; Limitations of transesophageal echocardiography.
- Intraoperative Evaluation of Valvular Function Using Transesophageal and Epicardial Echocardiography. Suenaga, Yoshito; Io, Akinori; Tajima, Kazuyoshi; Min-Ho Song; Shimomura, Takeru // Vascular Surgery;Jan/Feb1995, Vol. 29 Issue 1, p1
Objectives and Background. Intraoperative transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) and epicardial echocardiography (ECE) offer the opportunity to assess valvular function before and after cardiopulmonary bypass. Valve reconstruction offers many advantages over prosthetic valve replacement. The...
