Surgeons at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia are implementing a new imaging tool to detect complications during heart surgery.
This tool, transesophageal echocardiography, or TEE, is used in order to detect whether or not more holes occur during heart surgery.
One of the common cardiac issues children can face are conotruncal defects, which affect how bloodflow works through the heart chambers. Surgery is done in order to correct this, but residual openings can occur during this sensitive surgery. This is where the TEE comes in.
Rather than having one of these residual openings occur, which normally can only be detected after surgery, surgeons can instead detect when openings immediately with the TEE. Results in this study, showed out of 335 patients, 34 patients experience these residual openings. The TEE showed a 56% rate of sensitivity and 100% rate of specificity to these complications.

Surgeons at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in California are using a 3D imaging device, BrightMatter Guide, to help with brain operations. This could change how surgeries are conducted in the future.
While surgeons are used to having conventional 2D images from MRIs or CT scans, this device allows for 3D viewing. This device may even replace the surgical microscope widely used in operations today, due to this device’s increased sensitivity.
One of the many benefits to this new technique is its ability to map and view the brain in real time during surgery. This would allow surgeons to first hand see any complications that may escape the naked eye, and address such complications.
