Book Description :
Case-based and heavily illustrated, Intraoperative and Interventional Echocardiography: Atlas of Transesophageal Imaging, 2nd Edition covers virtually every clinical scenario in which you’re likely to use TEE. Drs. Donald C. Oxorn and Catherine M. Otto provide practical, how-to guidance on transesophageal echocardiography, including new approaches and state-of-the-art technologies. More than 1,500 images sharpen your image acquisition and analysis skills and help you master this challenging technique. Real-world cases and abundant, detailed figures and tables show you exactly how to proceed, step by step, and get the best results. Each case begins with a brief presentation and discussion, and integrates clinical echocardiography, surgical pathology, and other imaging data. Clear descriptions of preoperative pathology guide you in choosing the best approach to common problems. The practice-based learning approach with expert commentary for each case helps you retain complex information and apply it in your daily practice. Every chapter has been thoroughly revised, with discussions of new technology and new techniques, including several techniques that are on the verge of becoming mainstream. New chapters cover current transcatheter valve therapies and device closures.
