Right-to-Left Shunt through a Patent Foramen Ovale Caused by Severe Tricuspid Regurgitation Detected with Color Doppler Echocardiography

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

We describe a 65-year-old patient with moderate combined mitral disease and severe tricuspid regurgitation, in whom the tricuspid regurgitant jet was oriented toward the interatrial septum. Color flow and pulsed Doppler demonstrated a late-systolic to mid-diastolic, right-to-left shunting of the tricuspid regurgitant jet through the foramen ovale. This finding was subsequently confirmed with transesophageal echocardiography.
