Shunt Size in Atrial Septal Defect

Abstract

Two-dimensional echocardiography and pulsed-Doppler studies have not proved to be reliable methods of assessing left-to-right shunt size in atrial septal defect. Doppler color-flow imaging displays the transatrial jet, providing a new dimension with the potential capability of quantifying left-to-right shunt size. Twenty-three patients with atrial septal… (More)
