OBJECTIVES This study was designed to determine the feasibility and accuracy of intracardiac echocardiography (ICE) in guiding percutaneous closure of atrial septal defects (ASD).

The sensitivity and specificity of ICE, compared to standard imaging techniques, in detecting potentially adverse procedural events and guiding remedial action will be an important… CONTINUE READING
