Abstract

Two cases in which Doppler and cross-sectional echocardiography demonstrated intracardiac shunts acquired by stab wounds to the heart are reported. These cases demonstrate the utility of these noninvasive methods in assessing the anatomic residua of penetrating cardiac injuries. In particular, the value of Doppler echocardiography in detecting lesions that are small, irregularly oriented, and situated in locations not well seen in standard two-dimensional echocardiographic imaging views is emphasized.
