Transesophageal echocardiography for diagnosing aortic injury: a case report and summary of current imaging techniques

, : Transesophageal echocardiography for diagnosing aortic injury: a case report and summary of current imaging techniques. Journal of Trauma 36(6): 877-880

Early diagnosis and rapid treatment of lethal aortic injuries associated with blunt trauma remain a challenge for trauma surgeons. The following case demonstrates the use of transesophageal echocardiography for definitive diagnosis of an aortic injury from blunt trauma. A summary of current diagnostic modalities is also presented.
