Application fields of intraoperative transesophageal 3D echocardiography.

[Application fields of intraoperative transesophageal 3D echocardiography.] Anaesthesist. 2014 Jul 3; Authors: Magunia H, Rosenberger P Abstract Intraoperative transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) is an established diagnostic tool and has to be regarded as the standard of care for intraoperative monitoring and cardiac surgical decision-making. Furthermore, intraoperative TEE is also used for monitoring and assessment of hemodynamic changes and the detection of previously unknown pathologies. In the past few years 3D-TEE has extended the spectrum of 2D-TEE by allowing pathomorphological features to be more easily and intuitively linked to the anatomy of the heart and the great vessels. Thus, a comprehensive 2D-TEE examination is favorably complemented by focused 3D-TEE. Especially during mitral valve surgery, 3D-TEE has proven its superiority in the diagnosis of the underlying pathology as demonstrated by a large number of studies in this field. This review presents the available data about the role of intraoperative 3D-TEE echocardiography and introduces practical fields of application. PMID: 24994014 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

rcq F Abstract After a first procedure carried out in 2002 by Pr Cribier's, Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement or TAVR revolutionized the management of aortic stenosis with a constant increase in the number of procedures performed worldwide. Experience of operators and teams and evolution of the technique has been accompanied by a drastic reduction in complications in patients at lower surgical risk. In parallel, the procedure was considerably simplified, carried out more and more under local anesthesia, with percutaneous femoral approach, secondary radial approach, prosthesis implantation without predilatatio...

FOR PATIENTS with severe aortic valve stenosis (AS) and significant comorbid conditions who are determined to be at a high or prohibitive surgical risk, transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) represents a viable and durable treatment option. The anesthetic management of these cases is often complex because the procedure may be complicated by hemodynamic instability or circulatory collapse. In particular, TAVR in patients with severely reduced left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) poses significant challenges, and optimal treatment strategies are not established fully.

IN THE ERA of multidisciplinary and team-based approach to organ system pathologies, there is a utility in standardization of healthcare practices to enhance coordination and improve quality. Clinical decision pathways developed to support collaborative decision-making by “heart valve teams” in the setting of aortic valve replacement,1 and more recently mitral valve intervention,2 is an example highlighting this trend and need for standardization in cardiovascular medicine.

CONCLUSIONS Systematic review of the literature and meta-analysis showed that pre-procedural anemia reduced long-term mortality following TAVI. This finding supports the need to correct preoperative anemia in patients with aortic stenosis to improve patient outcome following TAVI. PMID: 31559972 [PubMed - in process]
