Severe tricuspid stenosis presenting as tricuspid atresia. Echocargraphic diagnosis and surgical management.

By D F Shore, M L Rigby and C Lincoln


Two cases of pulmonary atresia with intact ventricular septum and severe tricuspid stenosis are described in which the initial angiographic diagnosis was tricuspid atresia and pulmonary atresia. Two dimensional echocardiography showed the features of an imperforate tricuspid valve because in each case contrast echocardiography failed to show anterograde flow from the right atrium to right ventricle. Successful radical surgical repair was achieved in one patient with performing a tricuspid valvotomy and inserting an external valved conduit between the hypoplastic right ventricle and the main pulmonary artery. In the second case, an infant died four weeks after tricuspid valvotomy and right ventricular outflow tract reconstruction
