A detailed understanding of the anatomic structures of both atria is mandatory for successful catheter-based interventional techniques. Some of the drawbacks of transthoracic and transesophageal echocardiography can be overcome by intracardiac echocardiography (ICE). We present our ICE experience based on 70 out of 186 patients who were included in a multicenter registry of transcatheter interatrial communication closures. The ultrasound catheter was a 9-Fr, 9 MHZ monoplane probe (Ultra ICE… CONTINUE READING
