Figure

  • Figure 1 The 2D TEE image of iatrogenic aorto-right atrial fistula before and after device closure. (A) In the 2D TEE image of iatrogenic aorto-right atrial fistula, continuous shunt flow (of which color Doppler velocity was up to 4 m/sec) from aorta to right atrium was observed. (B) The 2D TEE image after device closure using Amplatzer Duct Occluder (white arrow).TEE = transesophageal echocardiography; 2D = 2-dimensional.

  • Figure 2 The 3D TEE image of before and after device closure. (A) The 3D TEE image before device closure; blunt arrow represented the iatrogenic fistula. (B) The 3D TEE image after device closure with Amplatzer Duct Occluder, (5×4 mm); narrow arrow indicated device which was deployed in the fistula.TEE = transesophageal echocardiography; 3D = 3-dimensional.
