In recent years, perioperative transesophageal echocardiography has become well estab-lished and widely used in several heart surgical operations. Heart transplantation, which is the treatment of choice for patients with end-stage heart failure, may benefit from transe-sophageal echocardiography. It can be adopted for assessing donor organs in addition to the perioperative monitoring of heart transplant patients. In this review, the perioperative use of transesophageal echocardiography is discussed in heart transplantation.
