Visualization of aortic arch branches by transesophageal echocardiography has been technically challenging. Visualizing these vessels helps in identifying the extent of dissection of the aorta, assessing the severity of carotid artery stenosis, presence of atheromatous plaques, patency of the left internal mammary artery graft, confirmation of subclavian artery cannulation, confirming holodiastolic flow reversal in the left subclavian artery by spectral Doppler imaging in case of severe aortic regurgitation, and confirming the optimal position of the intraaortic balloon perioperatively. The information obtained is helpful for diagnosis, monitoring, and decision-making during aortic surgery.
