Abstract  We present a case of acute respiratory insufficiency with right-to-left atrial shunting under normal intracardiac pressures discovered several days after aortic surgery for aortic dissection. We discuss the possible mechanisms and management of right-to-left atrial shunting through an atrial septum defect with normal intracardiac pressures following cardiac surgery. (J Card Surg 2011; **:1-3).
