B) Fluoroscopy showing a transseptal puncture through an ASO (arrow). C) Fluoroscopy showing predilatation with 12 × 40 mm balloon (arrow). D) TEE with three-dimensional (3D) imaging shows a steerable guide catheter through the ASO (arrow). E) Fluoroscopy showing deployment of an additional clip (arrow) through the ASO. F) TEE showing trivial MR (arrows) after additional clips. G) 3D-TEE showing new iatrogenic defect (arrow). H) ...
