Efe SÇ, Unkun T, Izci S, Cap M, Bakal RB, Acar RD, Geçmen C, Erdoğan E, Ozdemir N - J Cardiovasc Thorac Res (2014)

Bottom Line: Endocardial cushion defect (ECD) can be partial (with two distinct valves) or complete (only one atrioventricular valve), and surgical therapy is usually required.Tricuspid valve thrombosis are rarely seen after surgery.We present a 39-year-old male patient with tricuspid valve thrombosis after De Vega's annuloplasty without the use of a ring.

ABSTRACT
Endocardial cushion defect (ECD) can be partial (with two distinct valves) or complete (only one atrioventricular valve), and surgical therapy is usually required. The optimal surgical technique is controversial but De Vega's annuloplasty is widely performed. Tricuspid valve thrombosis are rarely seen after surgery. We present a 39-year-old male patient with tricuspid valve thrombosis after De Vega's annuloplasty without the use of a ring.

Mentions: For prevention of embolism and exclusion of tumor, surgical operation was performed. The excised specimen was reported as an organized thrombus (Figure 1-D), therefore, anticoagulation with warfarin was prescribed for 6 months after the operation.
