We present a case of a 70-year-old woman with severe peripheral arterial disease presenting with celiac artery in-stent thrombosis diagnosed by transesophageal echocardiography (TEE). Routine assessment of the visceral arteries is not performed in most TEE studies. A review of the literature shows that the celiac and superior mesenteric arteries can be successfully visualized during transgastric views of the abdominal aorta. We propose that two-dimensional and color Doppler echocardiography have several intrinsic advantages over computed tomography, magnetic resonance angiography and catheterization when assessing aortic and visceral arterial pathology.
