Aim: The need for more than one cross-section in the imaging of the atrial septum with two-dimensional (2D) echocardiography creates a limitation in determining the morphology of atrial septal defects (ASD) and negatively affects the success of the percutaneous closure procedure. In this study, measurements of ASDs and surrounding rims obtained by 3D transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) were compared with 2D TEE and angiographic balloon sizing measurements.
