[Spontaneous echo contrast in transesophageal echocardiographic examination: clinical ultrasonic analysis].

Abstract

The clinical and echocardiographic variables related to spontaneous echo contrast were evaluated in a consecutive series of 600 patients undergoing transesophageal echocardiography with a 5-MHz single plane transducer. The spontaneous contrast was observed in 110 patients (18%). It was seen mainly in the atria; in the left atrium in 98, in the right atrium… (More)
