ANESTESIOLOGA, Silvina Longo. Médica et al. Usefulness of transesophageal echocardiography in mitral valve surgery. Anest Analg Reanim [online]. 2017, vol.30, n.1, pp.62-95. ISSN 0255-8122.

The following work details an integral approach to the evaluation and intraoperative management of surgery on the mitral valve. Advances in technology have made this technique a fundamental instrument in the intraoperative management of these patients. The new surgical techniques of mitochondrial valve repair have determined that the bi-dimensional ecotransesophageal approach has become a routine examination, however, the advent of three-dimensional ultrasound (3D) has allowed us to learn more about the functional anatomy of the mitral valve’s regurgitation, the predominant pathophysiological mechanism, and to conduct real-time evaluations of the results of a surgical repair or replacement. These contributions have contributed to surgical teams’ decision-making capabilities, resulting in a greater success rate for mitral valve repair and a reduction of surgical complications.

Palabras clave : Transesophageal ultrasound; Mitral valve; Intraoperative monitoring.
