A 88 year-old man admitted with iterative severe chest distress and breathlessness associated with activity without chest complaint for 5 years. He underwent an initial 2DE that did not confirm HVM/NVM and 3DE that strengthened the diagnosis of HVM/NVM. In contrast to 2DE, 3DE provides for pyramid-shaped datasets that encompass the entire right ventricular. Specifically, right ventricular can be sectioned in userselected planes and an unlimited number and angles of such planes can be used. The present case should be regarded as isolated right ventricular HVM/NVM because there were no any factors that could explain the arrest of the development of the myocardial structure.
