Abstract

TOE is currently the most sensitive method for detection and quantitation of residual mitral regurgitation following valve repair. Evaluation can be performed within a similar time to that required for one complete transthoracic study and can usually be performed with minimal disruption to the hospital echocardiography laboratory.
