This second edition of the Transesophageal Echocardiography Multimedia Manual is a comprehensive resource and essential guide to the rapidly expanding field of perioperative transesophageal echocardiography (TEE), encompassing newer cardiac surgery techniques, more diverse surgical procedures, and use in the intensive care unit.

With over 900 figures, this well-illustrated manual and its accompanying videos and self-test questions demonstrate new developments and challenges for the anesthesiologist, cardiologist, cardiac surgeon, critical care physician, and those interested in perioperative TEE. The accompanying downloads present two-dimensional examples in their original video format accompanied by sketches, three-dimensional orientation, Doppler-related information, and hemodynamic, radiologic, and anatomical correlation to assist the user visualize the dynamic process of transesophageal echocardiography.

New to this edition!

  • Now in full-color with over 800 pages of content, including six new chapters covering new minimally invasive cardiac surgical techniques, non-cardiac surgery, and complementary imaging techniques such as three-dimensional echocardiography plus updates to all existing chapters
  • Over 900 high-resolution images to illustrate the advancement of echocardiography technology
  • Companion downloads showcase over 1000 videos of 2-dimensional examples accompanied by 3-dimension orientation providing an interpretation of results, plus over 140 self-test questions

  • Expert perspectives from over 85 renowned and experienced anesthesiologists, cardiologists, cardiac surgeons, and critical care physicians from five countries


"This is an update of a comprehensive reference and resource for physicians who include perioperative TEE in their clinical practice. It nicely updates the previous edition with new developments in the field and an expanded focus on increasingly common situations in which TEE is employed. While the latter is certainly not the primary focus of the book, the discussion of the role of perioperative TEE outside of cardiac surgery is unique and reflects the growing role of this important diagnostic and monitoring technique. This edition's generous use of color illustrations distinguishes it from similar books and increases its usefulness. This excellent resource would be a worthy addition to the reference library of any physician who commonly uses TEE in the perioperative setting."
