A patient is described with severe rheumatic mitral and tricuspid insufficiency in whom both atrioventricular valves with their chordae tendineae and papillary muscles were resected and replaced with Hancock porcine grafts. This would appear to be the second such patient reported and the first described in detail in whom the third heart sound persisted postoperation. This occurrence documents the fact that a third heart sound can occur in the absence of native atrioventricular valve leaflets and the major portions of the subvalvular supporting apparatus, and argues against the theory that the third heart sound is generated by either the valvular leaflets of the subvalvular apparatus.
