Can you get a paradoxical emboli with an VSD or is it only possible to get a paradoxical emboli with an ASD? 





  #2

I think ASD is more common in adults that's why they mention it , but with VSD it also possible



  #3

It may be possible but I believe that the pressure gradients are strongly in disfavor of paradoxical embolies traveling between the ventricles. smiling face


  #4

its possible to have it from both ASD and VSD. but ASD is more common. The pt scenario for USMLE might a pt with DVT has a stroke expected cardiac abnormality would be ASD.
