Valved conduit bypass for extensively calcified tricuspid valve stenosis.

PMID:  7646118     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
A case of calcified tricuspid valve stenosis resulting from a complication of ventriculoatrial shunt implantation is presented. Tricuspid valve repair or replacement was not possible because of the prohibitive risk of damaging the right atrioventricular junction and conductive pathways. This rare lesion was treated successfully by insertion of an external right atrial-right ventricular valved conduit. The role of echocardiography in the detection of such a lesion is emphasized and the etiologic and therapeutic aspects are discussed.
