Özet

Background: The aim of our study was to demonstrate the added value of routine transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) for correctly positioning the transseptal system in the fossa ovalis (FO), thus potentially preventing complications during fluoroscopy-guided transseptal puncture (TP), and for assessing the optimal puncture site within the FO according to the expected procedure type.
