abstract

  • Intraoperative echocardiography (IOE) has earned a major role in surgical decision-making and helps the cardiac surgeon decide and proceed with appropriate intervention based on the visualized pathology. With the advent of minimally invasive surgical techniques and robotic-assisted operations, more emphasis and dependence has been placed on IOE. We describe our experience with IOE during mitral valve repair at our center, which is one of the pioneer centers for these telemanipulation techniques.
