    Double inter-atrial septum is an exceedingly rare congenital cardiac abnormality. We describe a case of transient ischaemic attack in a 53 year-old female found to have double inter-atrial septa on transthoracic and transoesophageal echocardiography. The midline inter-atrial chamber enclosed by...

    Up to 40% of acute ischaemic strokes in young adults are cryptogenic in nature, that is, no cause is determined. In more than half of these patients, patent foramen ovale (PFO) is seen along with an increased incidence of atrial septal aneurysm. The commonest method of investigation is...

    We report the case of a 70-year-old woman with rheumatic mitral stenosis and a transient ischaemic attack. Transoesophageal echocardiography revealed a cystic mass in the right atrium, hanging to the interatrial septum by a pedicle, not circulating. The mass was heterogeneous and suggested a...
