Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

The anatomic, clinical, radiologic, ECG and hemodynamic features of five cases of surgically proved complete absence of the atrial septum are presented. Technical details of the method of correcting this malformation are described. At follow up, all are alive and well. It is suggested to subdivide this entity into single atrium, when complete absence of the atrial septum is found but the atrioventricular valves are normal, and common atrium, in which, in addition to the absence of atrial septum, endocardial cushion defect is also present.
