Abstract

Atrioventricular septal defects (AVSD) entails a wide range of morphological anomalies including the interatrial and interventricular communications and the atrioventricular (AV) valve(s). However, “En face ”visualization of these anomalies could not be done using standard two-dimensional echocardiography. Therefore, we report a case that highlights the role of three-dimensional echocardiography in imaging AVSDs.
