A 7-month-old child without significant past medical history was presented to her primary care physician with progressive symptoms of tachypnea and failure to thrive. A transthoracic echocardiogram revealed an atrial septal defect measuring 26 mm essentially creating a common atrium. Also observed was an interruption of the inferior vena cava with azygous continuation. Operative intervention was scheduled. Of note, the patient's twin sister underwent repair of an atrioventricular septal defect as an infant.
The intraoperative transesophageal echocardiogram is shown in Figure 1
