(Abstracted from J Cardiothorac Vasc Anesth, 31:602–609, 2017) Perioperative hemodynamic monitoring and intervention using transthoracic echocardiography (TTE) in high- risk surgery patients can decrease the rates of adverse events, morbidity, and mortality; however, evidence regarding its benefits is required. This prospective interventional study aimed at evaluating the efficacy of intraoperative TTE to alter patient management in high-risk and extensively monitored surgical patients susceptible to hemodynamic instability.
