In order to assess the role of multiplane transesophageal echocardiography in detecting mediastinal masses and in evaluating the manifestations of cardiac compression due to tumoral growth, 3 cases of patients with right ventricular outflow obstruction are presented. In each of these patients transesophageal echocardiography provided an accurate evaluation of the hemodynamic consequences of the tumoral process
