Each case is succinctly presented in an easy-to-read question-answer, self-test format comprised of three printed pages of text and echo images. Echocardiography technique, interpretation, and case management are emphasized by internationally recognized experts in the field. The cases are organized to cover the gamut of clinical challenges faced by perioperative echocardiographers, including disorders of the aorta, left ventricle, and right ventricle, valvular heart disease, congenital heart lesions, catheter and device placement, and unsuspected masses and thrombi. Case challenges related to technical issues such as image optimization and artifacts are also addressed. The versatility of TEE is represented by 2-D, 3-D, color flow and spectral Doppler, tissue Doppler imaging, and quantitative assessments of volumes, pressures, and the severity of valvular pathologies. A companion website contains the fully searchable text plus echocardiographic video clips for each case presented in the book.
