Table 1: Alexander Olivares classifications of atrial septal aneurysm Type 1R The ASA protrudes from the midline of the atrial septum
to the right atrium Type 2L The ASA protrudes from the midline of the atrial septum
to the left atrium Type 3RL The maximal excursion of the ASA is toward the right atrium with a lesser excursion toward the left atrium Type 4LR The maximal excursion of the ASA is toward the left atrium with a lesser excursion toward the right atrium Type 5 The ASA movement is bidirectional and equidistant to the right as well as to the left atrium during the cardiorespiratory cycle
After assuring competent mitral valve, continuous Prolene stitches were used to close the remaining inter atrial septum
A separate issue is that mild heart defects, especially of the atrial septum
, can be overdetected, particularly for infants born preterm who are under increased surveillance and whose hearts have yet to fully mature (Tanner et al.
Out of 9 left atrial myxomas, 7 were pedunculated and attached to the atrial septum
, while 2 cases attached to the posterior wall of the left atrium.
It also ruled out LA and LAA clot and ensured that inter atrial septum
Scarlett, of Pallister Park, was born on July 13 with the rare condition hypoplastic left heart syndrome with an intact atrial septum
- a rare combination which meant only half her heart was operating.
Additionally, a patent foramen ovale (PFO) was noted in the atrial septum
(Figure 2(b)) and a single large artery overriding the VSD was also identified.
Two smaller, immobile masses attached to the atrial septum
were also seen, which most likely represented atrial thrombi.
During the minimally-invasive catheter-based procedure, an interventional cardiologist places the IASD through a small opening in the atrial septum
Chanel Murrish, now one, was diagnosed with a rare condition - hypoplastic left heart syndrome with intact atrial septum
- at her mum Fay's 20-week scan.

Protein-losing enteropathy: radiofrequency fenestration of the atrial septum
after failure of transseptal needle puncture.
He started the procedure of Balloon dilation of the Atrial Septum
and Mitral Balloon Valvuloplasty for the first time in the world at AIIMS, New Delhi.
Depending on the attachments, or lack thereof, of the common atrioventricular valve to the atrial and ventricular septums, there may be a defect in the lowermost portion of the atrial septum
, in the ventricular septum, or both.
He had two types of heart defect, a large opening in the ventricular septum and lots of small abnormalities in the atrial septum
," said Andrew.
