PMID:  6597255     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
A woman suffering from TCGV associated with steno-insufficiency with a prolapse of left atrioventricular valve (tricuspid) and an insufficiency with a prolapse of right atrioventricular valve (mitral) presented a systolic honk which was to be registered in all the precordial area. The increase of this noise at the end of inspiration and after amyl nitrite, in the absence of any relevant change as to the prolapse of both atrioventricular valves, demonstrated that the honk originated from the right atrioventricular valve more than from the left one.
