Abstract

Advances in and miniaturization of echocardiographic technology have led to many new methods of examining cardiovascular malformations. Intracardiac echocardiography (ICE) has reached a point where a real impact on clinical medicine can be anticipated. Use of ICE guidance during electrophysiologic and some interventional catheterization procedures will probably become standard clinical practice in the near future. Current results in adults and potential application to and limitations in the pediatric population are discussed.
