Reviews

“The second edition of Perioperative Two-Dimensional Transesophageal Echocardiography: A Practical Handbook is a captivating clinical adjunct, useful quick reference guide, and a tour de force of 2D perioperative transesophageal echocardiography. … is highly recommended and is a solid clinical teaching aid that illustrates the field of perioperative echocardiography.” (David T. Andrews, Anesthesia & Analgesia, Vol. 127 (05), November, 2018)
“The primary audience is residents, fellows, or practitioners, primarily in cardiothoracic surgery, anesthesiology, and cardiology, who will be caring for perioperative cardiac surgery patients. … The strongest components of the book are the echo images, anatomical figures, and illustrations. … This feature makes this a valuable reference source. … I do not know of another book that incorporates this amount of information with good, clear TEE images that can be easily brought into the OR.” (Michael Bates, Doody's Book Reviews, April, 2018)
