Typical images of the left atrial septal pouch (arrows). A. Transoesophageal echocardiography, bicaval view. B. The absence of interatrial shunting is mandatory, as proven by the right cavity contrast injection. C. Three-dimensional echocardiography “en face” view of the pouch opening into the left atrium. D. Computed tomography contrast image of the heart, demonstrating the relationship between the direction of the flow coming from the pulmonary veins and the opening of the pouch. LA: left atrium; LASP: left atrial septal pouch; RA: right atrium; RUPV: right upper pulmonary vein.

Forest plot representation of the results from the significant case–control studies comparing ischaemic stroke with controls. Studies are displayed on the vertical, and are marked with a square of proportional size to the study's calculated weight. The overall effect is lowermost, and marked with a rhombus. CI: confidence interval; HR: hazard ratio; LASP: left atrial septal pouch.
