Left-sided congenitally unguarded tricuspid valve with congenitally corrected transposition of the great arteries: A rare diagnosis confirmed by three-dimensional echocardiography.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

Left-sided unguarded tricuspid valve disease with congenitally corrected transposition of the great arteries (ccTGA) is a rare cardiac malformation, only reported a few times in the literature. Two-dimensional echocardiography (2DE) uses standard views to diagnose tricuspid valve disease. Advanced imaging techniques, such as three-dimensional echocardiography, allow for simultaneous visualization of the tricuspid valve annulus and all leaflets. Three-dimensional echocardiography (3DE) may be useful in distinguishing unguarded tricuspid valve orifice from other forms of tricuspid valve disease.
