  • Proximity of the oesophagus and the thoracic aorta permits high resolution images.
  • Emergency evaluation of clinically unstable patients with acute aortic syndromes is common scenario.
  • Echocardiography particularly TEE is an invaluable tool in the evaluation of Aorta.
  • Its role in acute aortic syndrome is well proved and comparable to other modalities.
  • TEE is used to detect complications of aortic dissection such as pericardial tamponade, aortic regurgitation, and myocardial ischemia.
  • TEE also guide surgical decision making before and after aortic intervention.
  • TEE with epiaortic scanning has become a gold standard for detection of aortic atherosclerosis.
  • Its role in endovascular therapy is also expanding to guide placement of stent and detection of leaks.
  • Different views for preoperative and peri & postoperative patient, detailed anatomy and outcomes with known complications are described in this video.
