The authors describe an unusual case of a young adult patient with symptomatic tricuspid valve insufficiency as a late consequence of pulmonary valve balloon dilatation in childhood. Patient was successfully treated by tricuspid valve repair with neo-chordae implantation and a ring plasty. Two years after the operation the patient, an active sportsman, is asymptomatic with trace tricuspid regurgitation on the echo examination.
