Abstract

Every perioperative transoesophageal echo (TEE) study should generate a written report. A verbal report may be given at the time of the study. Important findings must be included in the written report. Where the perioperative TEE findings are new, or have led to a change in operative surgery, postoperative care or in prognosis, it is essential that this information should be reported in writing and available as soon as possible after surgery. The ultrasound technology and methodology used to assess valve pathology, ventricular performance and any other derived information should be included to support any conclusions. This is particularly important in the case of new or unexpected findings. Particular attention should be attached to the echo findings following the completion of surgery. Every written report should include a written conclusion, which should be comprehensible to physicians who are not experts in echocardiography.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
