Journal of Perioperative Echocardiography


Dextrocardia (DC) is a rare cardiac anomaly that can be associated with other congenital abnormalities. Transesophageal echocardiographic imaging for evaluating these patients requires modification of the omniplane angle from the standard angles used. We describe the imaging technique in this condition when it is associated with situs solitus (SS) and situs inversus.

Keywords: Dextrocardia, Echocardiography, Situs inversus, Transesophageal.
