The Doppler-echocardiographic features of persisting right ventricular myocardial sinusoids are presented. An 18-year-old patient with persisting right ventricular sinusoids had undergone comissurotomy for critical pulmonary artery stenosis at the age of 12 months. Follow-up catheterization at the age of 17 years revealed no signs of residual pulmonary artery stenosis, outflow tract obstruction or pulmonary hypertension. No shunt could be documented. High systolic velocity jets within the myocardial sinusoids were recorded by means of continuous-wave Doppler. Pulmonary artery blood flow velocity was recorded mainly consequent to atrial contraction and was reduced during right ventricular ejection period, thus reflecting impaired systolic and diastolic right ventricular function.
