Abstract:
Transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) was performed in 35 patients aged 19 to 76 years. Interactions between indications for the study were often complex. The main indications, however, were suspected endocarditis, prosthetic valve dysfunction, native valvular disease, disorders of the aorta, and assessment of patients with peripheral embolic events or stroke. Twentyfive patients were hospitalized and 5 of these were studied intraoperatively during heart surgery, 10 were outpatients. TEE was more specific than transthoracic echo in 20 of 35 patients. In 15 patients TEE led to further assessment by cardiac catheterization or to change in treatment. Complications during the TEE examination were rare. The results are in line with larger studies on the applicability of TEE. The paper further discusses the technique of transesophageal echocardiography, clinical applications end future prospects.; Hjartaómun um vélinda (transesophageal echocardiography) var gerð hjá 35 sjúklingum á aldrinum 19-76 ára á hjartarannsóknardeild Haukeland háskólasjúkrahússins í Björgvin. Samspil ábendinga fyrir rannsókninni var oft flókið, en aðalábendingar voru grunur um hjartaþelsbólgu, starfrænar truflanir á gervilokum, lokugallar, ósæðarsjúkdómar, og segaleit. Inniliggjandi sjúklingar voru 25 og hjá fimm þeirra var rannsókn gerð meðan á hjartaaðgerð stóð, en 10 sjúklingar voru utan spítala. Hjá 20 af 35 sjúklingum gaf hjartaómun um vélinda sérhæfðari og gleggri upplýsingar en hefðbundin hjartaómun. 115 tilvikum leiddi skoðunin til frekari rannsóknar, t.d. hjartaþræðingar eða breyttrar meðferðar. Fylgikvillar voru fáir. Grein þessi lýsir aðferðinni í aðalatriðum og skýrt verður nánar frá helstu ábendingum hennar og árangri.
