Özet

Although diagnostic value of transthoracic echocardiography in cardiac echinococcus is well established, the role of transesophageal echocardiography in both the diagnosis and the management of this entity is not well known. We present 3 unusual cases of cardiac hydatid cyst in which transesophageal echocardiography was used. A review of the literature on the subject is also presented.
