Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Atrial septal aneurysm (ASA) with diagnosis during life is a rarely reported anomaly, especially when not associated with other congenital or acquired valvular cardiopathies. Among 4,000 routine echocardiograms, 23 cases of ASA were found (8 men and 14 women, aged 19 to 79 years). Three patients had coronary artery disease, 2 had dilated cardiomyopathy, 2 had systemic hypertension, 11 had mitral valve prolapse and 5 had no other identifiable cardiovascular diseases. Echocardiography revealed various motion patterns of ASA. No phonomechanocardiographic findings were related to the presence of ASA, and no correlation between echographic and phonocardiographic findings was found.
