    We present a case of severe tricuspid valve insufficiency because of disruption of the anterior tricuspid leaflet with congenital absence of left thoracic pericardium. Findings suggest that tricuspid valve disruption was a result of distorted right ventricular geometry because of luxation of the...

    Double-orifice tricuspid valve (DOTV) is a very rare congenital cardiac anomaly. We report an unusual example of DOTV where one orifice was committed to the left ventricle. This was identified preoperatively and managed surgically.

    Posttraumatic tricuspid insufficiency is a rare clinical entity that is mostly associated with traffic accidents causing nonpenetrating chest wall injury. Here we report a patient with a flail tricuspid valve detected many years after blunt chest trauma at work place.

    The Ebstein's anomaly consists of a congenital heart defect with rare malformation of the tricuspid valve, occurring in about 1% of congenital heart diseases. Compared to other congenital heart diseases, the anomaly described has a slower clinical course, with possible repercussions occurring...

    Coronary artery fistula (CAF) is a rare congenital anomaly with an incidence of 1 in 50 000 live births. The fistula was observed at the right coronary artery in 53%, the left coronary artery in 42% and both coronary artery in 5% of the cases. Echocardiography examination in a 46 year-old woman...

    Extensive calcification of the tricuspid valve in a 40 year-old patient with pulmonic stenosis is reported. Hemodynamic investigation and angiocardiography confirmed significant gradients across the pulmonic valve and infundibulum of the right ventricle, as well as tricuspid insufficiency. Few...

    Congenital or acquired communication between left ventricle and right atrium is rare and can be easily overlooked as an eccentric tricuspid regurgitation jet. MRI is the ideal modality for accurate diagnosis, providing details for surgical planning about the location and size of the defect.

    Background Quadricuspid aortic valve is one of the rare forms of congenital cardiac valvular disease. Its diagnosis is often missed, even with the transthoracic echocardiogram. Many of these patients progress to aortic incompetence later in life requiring surgical intervention. In addition,...
