Thank you for your question.Cardiac TOE is done to rule out a clot in the heart.TOE is one of the best tests to have a look at the heart particularly for ruling out a clot inside the atrium of the heart.Before surgery they want to be sure that there is no clot inside the heart which is why they are doing the TOE.Let me know if you have more questions.Please rate me by clicking on one of the stars.Kind regards
