Abstract: Gerbode defect is an unusual cardiac defect; its association with a double orifice mitral valve has not been previously reported. We present a case of a 45-year-old woman who complained of palpitation and dyspnea on exertion. Echocardiography revealed an abnormal communication between the left ventricle and the right atrium, but misinterpreted a double orifice mitral valve as fusion of the anterolateral commissure. The Gerbode defect was closed during cardiopulmonary bypass, while the double orifice mitral val… Show more

“…Aetiologies of the LV-RA shunts were congenital in 32 (26.4%) cases [ 6 , 7 , 9 28 , 30 32 ], acquired in 88 (72.7%) cases [ 2 , 3 , 7 , 8 , 18 , 31 , 33 68 , 70 90 , 92 , 94 – 104 , 106 108 , 110 , 111 ] and unknown in 1 (0.8%) patient [ 112 ], respectively. A significant difference was noted in the percentages between congenital and acquired LV-RA shunts (χ 2 = 52.3, p < 0.0001).…”

“…Fever (8 patients, 9.1%) was a more common symptom in the acquired group patients. Aortic wall abscesses were seen in 9 patients (10.2%) [ 33 , 39 , 40 , 53 , 55 , 58 , 78 , 87 , 104 ] and atrioventricular block in 12 (13.6%) (2 were with aortic wall abscess [ 39 , 61 ], 6 were third degree [ 39 , 61 , 82 , 89 , 99 , 102 ] and 6 were first degree [ 18 , 44 , 48 , 86 , 101 , 102 ]) of the acquired group patients but in none in the congenital patients. There was significant dominance of right atrium dilation, right ventricle dilation, tricuspid regurgitation and pulmonary artery hypertension ( Table I ).…”
