BACKGROUND The postoperative monitoring and treatment of the patient undergoing aortic valve replacement is a complex challenge. Echocardiography is the only method which provides dynamic and real-time bedside imaging of the heart. Focused assessed transthoracic echocardiography has been shown to provide a usable window for cardiac imaging in a mixed ICU population. The aim of this study was to evaluate the feasibility of perioperative imaging of the heart and pleura according to the focused… CONTINUE READING
