Özet

Background: Due to limited exposure, removal of intracavitary air and visual assessment of cardiac function during minimally invasive procedures are not. always possible. We analysed the utility of intraoperative transesopliageal echocardiography (TEE) and postoperative transthoracic echocardiographic (TTE) in minimally invasive mitral valve (MV) procedures.
