Overview

Focusing on one of the most exciting imaging modalities available in modern clinical cardiology, Atlas of Multiplane Transesophageal Echocardiography provides a comprehensive analysis of this modality drawn from the authors' experience. Designed to cover the breadth and depth of the topic, the book covers the evaluation of prosthesis, interventional cardiology techniques, and intraoperative transesophageal echocardiology.

Each chapter begins with normal cardiac structure and function followed by abnormalities and demonstrates how to measure and interpret cardiac chamber sizes and function. Transesophageal echocardiographic images are juxtaposed with top-quality anatomic specimens, nearly 3000 images in total, to give a clear understanding of normal and abnormal cardiac anatomy. The clinical emphasis provides an authoritative review of the available techniques and the images that can be obtained with them.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Jamshid Alaeddini, MD (Ochsner Clinic Foundation)
Description: With this book, the authors present images from their experience of over 10,000 transesophageal echocardiograms, offering a comprehensive atlas of transesophageal echocardiography.
Purpose: During the last decade, the transesophageal echocardiography has become a major diagnostic tool in cardiology, anesthesiology, and cardiovascular surgery. The purpose of this book is to provide a comprehensive collection of reference images for physicians performing transesophageal echocardiography. The book succeeds in this mission.
Audience: The primary audience for this book is physicians who perform transesophageal echocardiography and physicians in-training in cardiology, thoracic surgery, and anesthesiology.
Features: The book is composed of two volumes with 10 chapters. The first volume covers normal anatomy, valvular diseases, and thoracic aorta disease. The second volume includes chapters analyzing the structure and function of cardiac chambers, prosthetic valves, cardiac tumors, and congenital heart disease. The last chapter provides insight into the special applications of transesophageal echocardiography including intraoperative use. Each chapter begins with discussion of normal structure and function and then reviews abnormalities. At the end of each chapter are several case studies which provide multiple images featuring both normal and abnormal morphology. There are many images with correlative anatomic specimens that are very helpful in understanding the relational anatomy. The general quality of images is very good.
Assessment: The authors succeed in providing a comprehensive atlas of transesophageal echocardiography. This book will be an attractive and useful addition to the libraries physicians who are training in or performing transesophageal echocardiography.
