Abstract

Fossa ovalis membrane aneurysm was diagnosed by transesophageal echocardiography in 45 of 134 consecutive patients (34%) with embolic cerebrovascular ischemic events. A potential cardiovascular source of embolism, other than the fossa ovalis membrane aneurysm, was found in 91% of these patients (41 of 45).
