New Guidelines from ASE

What You Need to Know

Lucy Safi, D.O., FACC, FASE, director of Interventional Echocardiography, Hackensack University Medical Center co-authored new guidelines published by the American Society of Echocardiography (ASE), Standards for the Performance of Transesophageal Echocardiographic Screening for Structural Heart Intervention.  

The new Guidelines elucidate and standardize how to acquire essential pre-interventional transesophageal echocardiographic images to help accurately identify the mechanisms of structural/valvular dysfunction, the hemodynamic as well as anatomic severity of the disease, and specific anatomic features to inform decision-making about appropriate device selection or exclusion. 

These peer-reviewed Guidelines, created by 14 international echocardiographers who are experts in this emerging field, have been endorsed by 25 American Society of Echocardiography International Alliance Partners and were published in the January 2022 issue of the Journal of the American Society of Echocardiography. 

The new Guideline and all ASE Guideline documents are also available online at  For more information:
