Is an interatrial communication the same as an atrial septal defect?
AbstractIt is, perhaps, unfortunate that those using
Anglo-saxon tongues, as opposed to romantic
languages such as French, Spanish, Italian, or
Portuguese, should describe holes permitting shunting
between the atrial chambers as septal defects rather
than interatrial communications. This is because,
of necessity, the understanding of deficiencies
of the atrial septum is entirely dependent on the
definition of the structures considered to represent
the atrial septum.
