PMID:  3805525     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
A patient is described who, at the age of 39, was diagnosed by cardiac catheterization as having congenital tricuspid atresia. Now 57 years old, this patient has never had surgery to correct or change this abnormality. Her survival is the longest reported for a patient with tricuspid atresia without surgical intervention.
