Transesophageal imaging of the aortic valve is often more difficult than imaging of the mitral valve, in part due to the anatomy of the aortic valve. This course reviews aortic valve anatomy and provides an overview of aortic stenosis, which is present in most patients who are in the operating room for an aortic valve replacement.

Please note this course includes a Reference section. For accurate completion status, you MUST review the reference section.
