A case of ventricular septal defect with tricuspid regurgitation complicating infective endocarditis



A case of ventricular septal defect with tricuspid regurgitation complicating infective endocarditis



Kyobu Geka. Japanese Journal of Thoracic Surgery 43(2): 143-146



A unique case of 52-year-old woman with a ventricular septal defect associated with tricuspid regurgitation complicating infective endocarditis was reported. Under cardiopulmonary bypass, the VSD was closed directly and tricuspid valve was replaced with a Carpentier-Edwards valve. Intraoperative examination showed that the VSD was perimembranous type (5 mm in diameter), all three leaflets were destroyed and one chordae of anterior leaflet was ruptured. Her postoperative course was uneventful and she has been well.
