Cannulation of the coronary sinus (CS) is sometimes difficult due to the presence of anatomical anomalies. Fluoroscopy is of limited value in visualizing these variations. This case is the first to demonstrate how intracardiac echocardiography (ICE) allows visualization of a valve, which is one of the causes of problematic cannulation of the CS. Based on information obtained by ICE an appropriate catheter could be selected.
