Abstract

Intraprocedural rotational intracardiac echocardiography by Ultra ICE allowed qualitative information consistent with a prominent mobile Crista Terminalis. The correct diagnosis of this right atrial pitfall zeroed the risk to mistake it for tumors or thrombi, avoiding needlessly costly additional investigations.
