Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Occasionally complex congenital cardiac disease presents for the first time in adulthood, encouraging us to reflect anew on our understanding of familiar conditions. A 59-year-old woman, who had had two normal pregnancies, attended with breathlessness and was found to have a double inlet left ventricle with concordant ventriculoarterial connections and a straddling tricuspid valve adherent to the malaligned ventricular septum.
