Abstract

We describe for the first time the use of transesophageal echocardiography to guide cardiac catheterization performed at the bedside in the pediatric cardiac intensive care unit. The procedure was performed on a 2.6‐kg infant with ventricular and atrial septal defects after repair of coarctation of the aorta. Poor hemodynamic status prevented obtaining the required hemodynamic information from cardiac catheterization in the cardiac catheterization laboratory. Transesophageal echocardiography provided cardiac and vascular imaging, which helped guide catheter placement where the small size of the infant and the extensive thoracic postoperative bandages prevented obtaining the echocardiographic information from other windows.
