Abstract/OtherAbstract:
We report on a case of severe tricuspid regurgitation (TR) in a young patient with no history of chest trauma and with an anatomically normal tricuspid valve (TV) apparatus and a dilated TV annulus associated with dystrophic calcification of the left ventricular myocardium. The possibility of congenital pathology as well as the possibility of this being a limited inflammatory or restrictive myocardial disease is discussed.
