A 7-year-old male was referred for evaluation of a heart murmur heard on routine check-up. Transthoracic echocardiogram revealed the presence of a fenestrated atrial septal defect (ASD) in a dextrocardia with total situs inversus ( mirror image ). Two Amplatzer Septal Occluders (Cook Incorporated, Bloomington, Indiana) were used to successfully occlude the ASDs with no residual shunt.
