Abstract

Atrial septal aneurysms, although rare, are being found with an ever increasing frequency through the technology of two-dimensional echocardiography. In this article, we report the identification of an atrial septal aneurysm and abnormal systolic flow toward the transducer and mitral valve by use of two-dimensional echocardiography with pulsed-wave Doppler capability.
