Two-dimensional transesophageal echocardiography shows a defect in the middle part of the coronary sinus and color doppler imaging displays the blue shunt from left artrium to coronary sinus. (AVI 4148 kb)

Real-time Three-dimensional TEE (RT-3DE,X7-2t, Philips IE33) displays an excellent view of the oval defect located at the posterior wall of the left atrium and its neighbouring structures. (AVI 2094 kb)

By rotating the 3-D pyramid and adjusting the plane of interesting, the RT-3DE shows right atrium and right ventricle more clearly. In addition, it displays the coronary sinus defect and the entrance of the coronary sinus in a different degree. (AVI 2060 kb)
