About this Textbook

This extensively revised textbook reviews the use of transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) in pediatric and young adult patients with cardiac disease. It reviews how TEE has made a vital contribution to these patients’ successful and continually improving clinical outcomes, enabling them to live well into adulthood. The book details the evolving technology and applications of TEE (including three-dimensional TEE), describing how this imaging approach remains at the forefront of clinical practice for pediatric patients and those with congenital heart disease (CHD).

Transesophageal Echocardiography for Pediatric and Congenital Heart Disease represents a unique contribution as the only contemporary text to focus exclusively on the clinical application of TEE in children and all patients with CHD. Written by numerous prominent specialists in the field, it presents a comprehensive, modern and integrated review of the subject. Specific chapter topics include the physics and instrumentation of TEE, structural and functional evaluation, and specialized aspects of the examination, with emphasis on the technical considerations pertinent to both pediatric and adult patients with a variety of congenital and acquired cardiovascular pathologies. Consequently, it serves as a comprehensive reference for the TEE evaluation of CHD, utilizing the segmental approach to diagnosis and discussing the TEE evaluation of the many anomalies encompassing the CHD spectrum. In addition, numerous other relevant topics are discussed, including application of TEE for perioperative and interventional settings. The book is richly illustrated, with many chapters supplemented by illustrative case studies and accompanying videos. A specific section with multiple-choice questions and answers is provided at the end of each chapter to reinforce key concepts. This textbook therefore provides an invaluable and indispensable resource for all trainees and practitioners using TEE in the management of CHD and pediatric patients.
