IPCCC Definition A congenital cardiac malformation in which there is an interatrial communication confined to the region of the oval fossa (fossa ovalis), most commonly due to a deficiency of the primary atrial septum (septum primum) but deficiency of the septum secundum (superior interatrial fold) may also contribute.
The anterior wall of the right atrial appendage has been incised and folded away revealing an interatrial communication (atrial septal defect) secondary to a deficiency in the floor of the oval fossa or primary atrial septum (septum primum).
