Cor triatriatum is a congenital heart defect resulting in abnormal septation of the left atrium by a fibromuscular membrane. Echocardiography has improved the preoperative diagnosis of this rare congenital heart defect. We report a case where transesophageal echocardiography proved useful in the intraoperative diagnosis of a previously undetected cor triatriatum.
