Video 1. Apical four-chamber view with simultaneous color Doppler showing turbulence across the cor triatriatum membrane and a dilated right atrium (RA) and right ventricle (RV). (AVI 4385 kb)

Video 2. Apical four-chamber view with color Doppler showing left-to-right flow across the atrial septal defect (ASD) in both systole and diastole, dilated right ventricle, and moderate tricuspid regurgitation. The membrane in the left atrium and the ASD proximal to the membrane also are evident. (AVI 6579 kb)
