Transesophageal Doppler Measurement of Renal Arterial Blood Flow Velocities and Indices in Children
Anesthesia & Analgesia, 05/31/2012
Zabala L et al. – This study confirms the feasibility of obtaining 2–dimensional images of kidney parenchyma and Doppler–derived measurements using transesophageal ultrasonography (TEE) in children. Angle–independent TEE Doppler–derived indices show significant concordance with those derived by transabdominal renal ultrasound.
