    We describe a patient in whom we found dual orifices in a straddling and overriding tricuspid valve, with two normally sized ventricles and a cleft in the mitral valve. The patient underwent successful surgical repair. We discuss the concept of "double-orifice right atrium", as well as the need...

    The article provides information on the morphological and echocardiographic features of atrioventricular septal defect. It is inferred that based on morphological and echocardiographic studies of the disorder, it is the atrioventricular septal structures which are deficient. In addition, the...

    Atrioventricular block is an important complication after percutaneous closure of perimembranous ventricular septal defects. In the majority of cases, it appears in early or in the midterm of closure. We present a patient who developed symptomatic Mobitz 2 second-degree atrioventricular block 3...

    Abstract: Objectives: Incompetence of the left atrioventricular valve remains the final Achilles’ heel of repair of atrioventricular septal defects (AVSDs), despite low operative mortality in the modern era. We have analysed the morphological basis for valvar incompetence in our own...

    Atrial septal defect closure is now routinely performed using a percutaneous approach under echocardiographic guidance. Centrally located, secundum defects are ideal for device closure but there is considerable morphological variation in size and location of the defects. A small proportion of...

    Abstract: Isolated anterior mitral leaflet cleft (not associated with atrio-ventricular septal defect) is a rare cause of congenital mitral regurgitation, and the treatment consists of direct suturing of the cleft. We present a clinical case with this entity.

    Double outlet atrium is a rare cardiac anomaly wherein one of the atriums, most frequently the right atrium, opens into both the ventricles. Although seen more commonly in the setting of atrioventricular septal defect, this arrangement can also be found when one of the atrioventricular...
