To investigate the accuracy of immediate postbypass transesophageal echocardiography in the assessment of residual cardiac defects, we compared intraoperative transesophageal echocardiograms with intra/postoperative data in 86 patients, aged 4 days to 30.7 years (median = 1.4 years), at risk for a total of 174 postoperative lesions: right (n= 55) or left (n= 26) ventricular outflow tract obstruction, ventricular septal defect (n= 65), aortic (n= 12) or mitral regurgitation (n= 8), or mitral… CONTINUE READING
