Sample text

The right atrium is enlarged because of tricuspid regurgitation as well as due to “atrialization” of the upper portion of the right ventricle (Fig. 3). On long-axis view, because of downward displacement of the tricuspid valve, there is simultaneous recording of the mitral and tricuspid valves (MV and TV). On short-axis view, the tricuspid valve is shifted clockwise, from the normal 9 0’clock position to the 11 0’clock position. The commonest reason for tricuspid regurgitation is dilatation of the tricuspid valve annulus secondary to right ventricular dilatation.

When the ductus fails to close physiologically within 24 hours after birth and anatomically within a week, it provides a communication between the aortic and pulmonary circulations. Flow from the aorta (at higher pressure) to the pulmonary artery (at lower pressure) creates a left-to-right shunt across the PDA (Fig. 3). Persistence of the ductus is sometimes associated with maternal rubella syndrome and premature delivery. 3: Patent ductus arteriosus The continuous murmur of PDA is classically described as a “machinery” murmur and is referred to as Gibson’s murmur.

The click and murmur can vary with alteration of left ventricular (LV) volume, by change in patient posture. During standing or Valsalva manoeuvre, when the LV volume is reduced, the click moves closer to S1 and the murmur becomes louder. Conversely, during squatting when the LV volume increases, the click moves closer to S2 and the murmur becomes softer. In mitral valve prolapse syndrome, the SI is loud for several reasons. The high adrenergic activity increases the heart rate and shortens diastole.
