A 45-year-old lady developed significant symptomatic tricuspid valve stenosis due to a ventriculoatrial (VA) shunt, implanted in childhood for idiopathic hydrocephalus. This appeared to be a rare complication of a VA shunt. After detailed discussions in multidisciplinary meeting, she underwent successful treatment with a single balloon valvuloplasty. To date, she has not suffered any complications.© 2010 Wiley-Liss, Inc.
