  • In recognition of the increasing clinical applications and use of intraoperative TEE, the American Society of Echocardiography (ASE) established the Council for Intraoperative Echocardiography in 1993 to address issues related to the use of echocardiography in the operating room. (lww.com)
  • Examination
  • The Society of Cardiovascular Anesthesiologists Task Force for Certification in Perioperative Transesophageal Echocardiography has endorsed these guidelines and standards of nomenclature for the various anatomically directed cross-sectional views of the comprehensive TEE examination. (lww.com)

  • TEE may be a valuable tool even in those stroke patients without a clinical suspicion for cardiac embolization. (ahajournals.org)
  • Researchers found that TEE does not improve clinical care, and clinicians should generally avoid it for the workup of stroke. (auntminnie.com)
  • It may be useful to think of TIA and stroke as conditions on the same clinical spectrum, similar to the relationship between unstable angina and acute myocardial infarction. (oncologynurseadvisor.com)

  • This document, therefore, is the collective result of an effort that represents the consensus view of both anesthesiologists and cardiologists who have extensive experience in intraoperative echocardiography. (lww.com)
  • Detection
  • However, it has become clear that an arbitrary, time-based definition of TIA is inadequate to differentiate TIA from stroke, as modern neuroimaging techniques have allowed detection of acute cerebral infarction even in patients whose symptoms completely resolve within hours of onset.
