Figure 11: This is a live 3DE transesophageal echocardiogram in a patient with a low secundum atrial septal defect. 2DE imaging demonstrated that the defect was in proximity to the coronary sinus, raising doubts about candidacy for device closure. In this 3DE image, the free walls and appendage of the right atrium have been removed. The viewer is looking posteriorly and leftwards. Note the high resolution of anatomic detail. The atrial septal defect is separated from the coronary sinus orifi ce by a reasonable distance. Based on the shape and size of the defect, this was felt by 3DE to be a reasonable candidate for device closure, which was successfully accomplished. L, left; S, superior
