3 HISTORYSide and Gosling (1971) …. TEE for CwD of cardiac flowFrazin et al (1976) …. TEE M mode echoHisanaga et al (1977) illustrated the use of cross sectional real time imaging
4 Invasive techniqueUSG probe closer to heart & great vessels … allows the use of high frequency transducers [better resolution]Monoplane Biplane MultiplaneFocus initially on the primary area of interest & then do a comprehensive examination [except in emergency settings]Almost all views obtained by TTE can be duplicated by TEE
5 ADVANTAGES OF TEETransducer mm from heartCloser to posterior structures…. Better visualization of LA, LAA, PV, MV, LV, AortaFar from surgical area … Intra-operative monitoringHigh resolution images : [Absence of intervening lung or bone tissue……Better signal to noise ratio and decreased image depth – allows use of higher freq (5 and 7 MHz) transducers – enhances image quality]DISADVANTAGES:semi invasive procedure: chances of injury ;needs special setup, technique, preparation, instrumentationneeds orientation and expertise
6 Assessment of a suspected cardioembolic event; INDICATIONSAssessment of prosthetic valves; infective endocarditis ; native valve diseaseAssessment of a suspected cardioembolic event;Assessment of cardiac tumors ;Assessment of atrial septal abnormalities ;Assessment of aortic dissection;Evaluation of CHD; CAD ;pericardial diseaseEvaluation of critically ill patientsIntraoperative monitoringMonitoring during interventional proceduresNondiagnostic TTE
7 CONTRAINDICATIONSABSOLUTEOesophageal stricture or obstructionSuspected or known perforated viscusInstability of cervical vertebraeGI bleeding not evaluatedRELATIVEEsophageal varices or diverticulaCervical arthritisOropharyngeal distortionBleeding diathesis or over-anticoagulation
8 PROCEDURE4- 6 hours fastingWritten consentIntravenous line ; oxygen ; suction equipment ; Remove denture or devices ; 2% lidocaine sprayECG must be monitored throughoutLeft lateral positionIntroduce the probe with some anteflexion through a bite blockRoutine antibiotic prophylaxis before TEE is not advocated [ risk of IE is extremely low]..Recommended in high risk patients ….prosthetic valves, multivalvar involvement or those with a past h/o IE]Persistent resistance to advancing the instrument mandates termination of TEE and endoscopy should be performed before re-examination.After each TEE … Disnfect ; Check for any damage…ensure electrical safety
9 Complications Majority are minor. Major complications [death, laryngospasm, sustained VT & CHF occur in ≈ 0.3% of patients]Cardiac complications include SVT or AF, VT, bradycardia, transient hypotension or hypertension, angina ,CHF and pulmonary edema.
10 TEE Probe :Modification of standard gastroscope, with transducers in place of fibreopticsConventional rotary controls with inner and outer dialsInner dial guides anteflexion and retroflexionOuter dial controls medial and lateral movementMultiplane probe has a lever control to guide rotationMonoplane TEE provides images in horizontal plane onlyWith biplane orthogonal longitudinal plane alsoMultiplane TEE transducer : single array of crystals [phased array transducers with piezoelectric elements] that can be electronically and mechanically rotated in an arc of 180 °to produce a continuum of transverse and longitudinal images from a single probe position
11 Standard imaging plane levels (from the incisors): upper or high esophageal (25–28 cm)mid-esophageal (29–33 cm)gastroesophageal junction (34–37 cm)transgastric (38–42 cm)deep-transgastric (>42 cm)
12 Proceed systematically… Proceed systematically….. from mid esophagus [≈35 cms from the incisors] to gradually more distal esophagus, fundus of the stomach after gentle advancement across the cardia [≈40-50 cms from incisors] and ﬁnally slow withdrawal of the probe for complete scan of the thoracic aorta [from high esophageal views].A complete TEE exam usually takes 15–20 min.An abbreviated or problem-focused TEE study may be appropriate in unstable or uncooperative patients…..
13 Transducer manipulation options: [video…tee simulation]  Advancement/withdrawal (for inferior or superior structures respectively) Rotation (clockwise to view rightward structures and counter- clockwise for leftward structures)
14  Anteﬂexion and retroﬂexion of the probe shaft (to view structures towards the heart base or towards the apex) Leftward and rightward ﬂexion of the probe shaft (used infrequently with the advent of multiplane probes) Electronic image plane rotation (0–1800)
18 ASE & SCA recommend 20 views for a comprehensive TEE.
