Delayed repair of esophageal perforation due to transoesophageal echocardiography
AbstractSince its introduction into clinical practice in the 1980s, transesophageal echocardiography has become an invaluable tool in cardiac surgery having only a few cases of serious complications reported in the literature. We report a novel case of delayed surgical repair of esophageal perforation due to transesophageal echocardiography in cardiac surgery and reviewed the anecdotal literature.
