Abstract

Intracardiac echocardiography guidance is replacing transesophageal echocardiography for percutaneous transcatheter closure of atrial septal defects eliminating the risks of endotracheal and esophageal intubation with a reduced procedure length. This case demonstrate that intracardiac echocardiography allows the correct Amplatzer disks implantation with percutaneous catheter closure in an elderly patient with short interventional times.
