Imaging of left-to-right shunt in adults
AbstractPurpose of review
Left-to-right shunts are commonly seen in congenital heart diseases. This review aims to review the anatomy, physiology, and imaging of the four most common left-to-right lesions in adults.Recent findings
Reported late complications of left-to-right lesions provide guidance in follow-up imaging. Use of three-dimensional echocardiography helps not only in the diagnosis of these defects but also in assistance during device closure.Summary
Noninvasive imaging plays a significant role in the diagnosis and management of left-to-right lesions.
