Abstract

The conventional preoperative evaluation of congenital heart disease in the adult using only echocardiography and cardiac catheterization is frequently limited. We report a case in which newer magnetic resonance imaging with gadolinium angiographic techniques proved helpful by conclusively documenting normal pulmonary venous return in a patient with unilateral atrial septal defect. This evaluation obviated the need for referral to a more specialized tertiary-care center for congenital heart disease and dramatized the value of all interdisciplinary approach to the adult patient with newly diagnosed congenital heart disease.
