This review summarizes the embryological development of the atrial septum and the abnormality resulting from improper partitioning of the atrium leading to a communication between the right and left atria. The pathophysiology and clinical presentation of isolated atrial septal defect are discussed. Confirmatory diagnosis is based on echocardiography, mainly two-dimensional and color Doppler echocardiography.
