Usefulness of live/real time three-dimensional transthoracic echocardiography in the characterization of ventricular septal defects in adults.

Abstract

In this report, we present 12 patients (range 14-76 years, mean 40 +/- 22.7 years) who underwent surgical repair of a ventricular septal defect (VSD). Location, size, and surrounding anatomy of the VSD were assessed prior to intervention in all patients with live/real time three-dimensional transthoracic echocardiography (3DTTE).
