We describe a 65-year-old patient with moderate combined mitral disease and severe tricuspid regurgitation, in whom the tricuspid regurgitant jet was oriented toward the interatrial septum. Color flow and pulsed Doppler demonstrated a late-systolic to mid-diastolic, right-to-left shunting of the tricuspid regurgitant jet through the foramen ovale. This finding was subsequently confirmed with transesophageal echocardiography.
