Abstract

The Cabrol procedure is being increasingly performed in patients with aortic pathologic conditions. Transesophageal echocardiography can help in the prompt diagnosis of endocarditis in these patients. In this report we present transesophageal echocardiographic features of two patients in whom endocarditis developed after they underwent the Cabrol procedure for ascending aortic aneurysm caused by Marfan's syndrome.
