The Rashkind procedure attempts to increase intracardiac
blood mixing through balloon dilation of an atrial septal defect.
Reevaluation with pulmonary CT angiograms and echocardiograms demonstrated a remarkable regression of PAAs, and organization of intracardiac
thrombus (Figures 2b and 3b, respectively).
This patient was initially asymptomatic, but she later exhibited signs and symptoms of heart failure, presumably from intracardiac

echocardiography: case report.
Govender and Moodley respond: Doctors for Life are to be thanked for their comments on and interest in our paper. While the main emphasis of this paper was a retrospective audit of the procedural technique of intracardiac
potassium chloride (KCl) for late termination of pregnancy (LTOP) and the outcomes thereof, it is acknowledged that the patients' rights in the decision process and beyond are equally important and were procedurally respected at this unit.
These are "Lateral Tunnel Fontan" (LTF), "Extra-Cardiac Conduit Fontan" (ECCF) and "Intracardiac
Depending on the size, site and mobility, intracardiac
masses may obstruct the intracardiac
flow of blood.
Doppler examination and a bubble study showed no intracardiac
These range from endoscopic or ultrasound-guided transabdominal or transvaginal procedures such as aspiration of the gestational sac contents in the early first trimester of pregnancy and intracardiac
KCl injection in the late first trimester; to umbilical cord occlusion/embolisation by various methods, intracardiac/umbilical vein injection of lethal drugs, and non-drug measures such as cardiac tamponade and heart blood aspiration at later gestations.
The new method makes use an ultrasound catheter (intracardiac
echocardiography) and a computer mapping system to obtain high resolution images of the heart and other key anatomic structures.
