Figure 9: The anatomic section and the three-dimensional echocardiograms are from different patients with muscular defects opening to the inlet of the right ventricle (double headed arrows). The sections show the retained off-setting of the hinges of the mitral and tricuspid valves (red arrows). The right hand panel shows how, although the defect seems no more than a slit in the muscular septum, it has considerable length. This is one of the advantages of three-dimensional interrogation, as it shows the full extent of the septal deficiency
