The arterial supply to PS is commonly from a systemic artery and venous drainage is to the pulmonary vein in ILS and to a systemic vein in ELS (1).
A "bubble study" indicated shunt ing of blood across the defect from the right to left atrium, indicating this course of small thrombi reaching the heart from the systemic veins and lodging in the brain instead of the lungs, where they could not do as much damage.
