    Notes: Abstract Interest in transseptal catheterization has increased in recent decades, due to the fact that the technique has acquired a degree of security similar to other procedures. For a correct transseptal catheterization technique, it is essential to know the exact location of the fossa ovalis, its points of reference, and those morphologic parameters which allow us to assume precisely its dimensions. For this purpose, 97 human fresh hearts were studied (age range: 17-94 years; mean 63.74 ± 18.50, 62 (64%) men and 35 (36%) women). The major and minor diameters of the fossa ovalis and the thickness of the intervenous tubercle were measured. In 22% of the cases, the fossa ovalis was permeable. Correlative tests between morphologic and general parameters were made. A positive correlation between cardiac weight and fossa ovalis area, and cardiac weight and thickness of the anterior limbus of the fossa was obtained.

    Description / Table of Contents: Résumé Le cathétérisme transseptal a vu son intérêt augmenter au cours de ces dernières décennies, en raison de l'innocuité de cette technique comparable aux autres investigations. La réalisation d'un cathétérisme transseptal nécessite une parfaite connaissance du siège de la fosse ovale, de ses dimensions et de ses paramètres morphologiques, ce qui nous a amenés à repréciser ses dimensions. A cet effet, 97 cœurs humains frais ont été étudiés (âges extrêmes : 17 à 94 ans ; moyenne d'âge 63,74±18,50, la série comportait 62 cœurs masculins (64 %) et 35 % cœurs féminins (36 %). Ont été mesurés : le grand et le petit diamètre de la fosse ovale, l'épaisseur de l'extrémité antérieure et de l'extrémité postérieure du limbe de la fosse ovale (a. de Vieussens) et l'épaisseur du tubercule interveineux (t. de Lower). La fosse ovale était perméable dans 22 % des cas. Des tests de relation entre les paramètres morphologiques et généraux ont été effectués. Des relations significatives entre le poids du coeur et la surface de la fosse ovale, et entre le poids du coeur et l'épaisseur de l'extrémité antérieure du limbe de la fosse ovale ont été trouvées.
