Abstract

High-quality imaging of the atrial septum has never been so relevant to the adult cardiologist. This article focuses on the role of echocardiography in the evaluation of patent foramen ovale for closure. It provides a systematic and comprehensive approach to transesophageal echocardiographic study in such a patient. The salient information required for planning the device and equipment needed for the closure procedure are discussed.
