Dear Sarahwright01,

Thank you for your question.  However, I prefer that you ask your medical doctor who will be performing your TEE and Echo regarding risks of those procedures.

In general, we will have patients take prophylactic antibiotics prior to surgery.  But, once again, I would rely on your doctor and your surgeon for this.  

I wish you the best of luck in your surgery.

Dr. Nassif
