Therefore, transesophageal imaging is particularly valuable in the routine clinical setting for the detection of atrial thrombi, small vegetations, diseases of the aorta, atrial septal defects, patent foramen ovale, and the assessment of prosthetic valve function. It is used in the operating or catheter suites to monitor and assess the repair of cardiac structures.

In the infant, it may result from hypoplastic left heart syndrome or total anomalous pulmonary venous connection below the diaphragm. Noncardiogenic or permeability edema is the accumulation of fluid in the lungs in the presence of normal left atrial pressures. This has many complex causes that disrupt the alveolar capillary membrane. Fluid and Water Exchange FIGURE 1-33. Primary pulmonary artery hypertension. The main pulmonary artery segment is convex and the hilar arteries are large. The peripheral vessels are larger at the base, smaller at the apex, and retain their normal branching pattern.

After many types of cardiac surgery, there may be sternal wire sutures, mediastinal clips, epicardial pacing wires, and umbrella closure devices (Figure 1-43). A myriad of vascular clips following the course of the left internal mammary artery indicates a graft to the left anterior descending or diagonal arteries. Most prosthetic mitral and aortic valve replacements are easily seen (Figure 1-44), except for the St Jude valve, whose ring is usually not visible. The leaflets of this valve appear as one or two straight lines and are seen in about 30% of chest films when the leaflets are tangential to the x-ray beam.
