Abstract

We report the second case of a right-to-left interatrial shunt due to a carcinoid tumor, which was successfully corrected by surgery. The patient had closure of a patent foramen ovale and tricuspid valve replacement. One and a half years after surgery, the patient had no symptoms related to heart disease.
