Multilevel obstruction of left-sided heart structures was originally characterized by Shone et al. The formulation of an appropriate operative strategy remains challenging and needs to be individualized for this complex subset of patients. Intraoperative transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) not only helps in delineating spatial anatomy but also reveals associated anomalies that help in decision-making regarding operative strategies for these patients. Here, we discuss five such cases of Shone's anomaly presenting at varied age group with different associated anomaly in which intraoperative TEE played a pivotal role in the management.
