Hello, .

Transesophageal Echocardiogram

Common Reasons For Testing

What to Expect

This test is an invasive endoscopic procedure done under moderate sedation. The throat is numbed using a spray; this will help eliminate the gag reflex. The Cardiologist will pass a thin, flexible ultrasound probe down the throat and into the esophagus. This allows very detailed and clear pictures of the heart valves and other structures to be obtained. This procedure takes approximately 30 minutes; allow 2 hours with prep and recovery.
