About the Authors
  • Core Topics in Transesophageal Echocardiography is a highly illustrated, full color, comprehensive clinical text reviewing all aspects of TEE. The text has been written particularly for those who are seeking accreditation in TEE. Section 1 includes chapters on first principles including cardiovascular anatomy, safety issues, indications and contraindications for use, US technology and physics and the details of image acquisition and interpretation in a variety of routine pathologies. Section 2 chapters discuss the use of TEE in a variety of more demanding clinical conditions including valve disease, complex ischaemic heart disease, the use of TEE in critical care and emergency settings, new echocardiography technologies, and TEE reporting. An outstanding free companion website (www.cambridge.org/feneck) contains numerous TEE video clips showing both normal and pathological states. Written by leading TEE experts from EACTA and EAE, this is an invaluable practical resource for all clinicians involved in the care of cardiac patients. A companion website of videos, giving a dynamic understanding of moving structures such as the heart, is also available at www.cambridge.org/features/fox/

    • Amazing free companion website containing numerous video clips of TEE sequences in normal and disease states - an invaluable aid to diagnosis!
    • Written by leading TEE experts from EACTA and EAE, the key societies involved in training clinicians in TEE
    • Practical and highly illustrated in full colour throughout

    Reviews & endorsements

    '… a reasonably comprehensive, well-written and well-illustrated review of TOE practice. This textbook will be of interest to both novice and experienced practitioners, and to those preparing for accreditation examinations …' Ultrasound

    'For the past month I have taken Core Topics to the clinic rather than my usual reference text. The book has answered all questions that have arisen during the course of the list … I have no hesitation in recommending this book. It should be of interest to both cardiac anaesthetists and cardiologists, particularly but by no means exclusively, those working towards an accreditation exam.' British Journal of Anaesthesia
