Atrial septal defects (ASD) are a type of congenital heart disease that are characterized by a communication between the left atrium with the right atrium. Preoperative intraoperative transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) evaluates cardiac anatomy and function. The objective of this paper was to compare the use of intraoperative TEE in corrective surgeries for ASD in pediatric patients.
