Echocardiography plays an important role in the diagnosis and follow-up of aortic diseases. Evaluation of the aorta is a routine part of the standard echocardiographic examination. Transthoracic echocardiography (TTE) permits adequate assessment of several aortic segments, particularly the aortic root and proximal ascending aorta. Transoesophageal… (More)
To evaluate the additional value of transesophageal (TEE) compared with transthoracic (TTE) echocardiography and the role of patent foramen ovale (PFO) and deep vein thrombosis in the work-up of embolic events, patients with presumed cardiac embolic stroke or transient ischemic attack (neurovascular etiology was excluded) were prospectively studied by… (More)
