Continuous intraoperative TEE monitoring for a child with Fontan pathway undergoing post spinal fusion.

Author information

Akron Children's Hospital Department of Anesthesia and Pain Management One Perkins Square Akron, OH 44308, USA.


The following case report describes a very challenging surgical case where the use of intraoperative, continuous TEE monitoring in the prone position was crucial for the anesthetic management (diagnosis and treatment) of a patient with single ventricle physiology. The use of TEE monitoring enabled the anesthesia team to continuously assess hemodynamic stability and respond immediately to hypotension and bradycardia in our patient, thereby providing optimal anesthetic care of the intraoperative spinal fusion patient with Fontan physiology.
