Abstract


We present a case of prolapsed posterior leaflet of tricuspid valve presenting as rapidly undulating serpentine mass in mid cavity of the right atrium during ventricle systole mimicking Chiari network. 3D echocardiography unveiled the mystery and confirmed prolapsed posterior leaflet of tricuspid valve. To the best of our knowledge such a large hypermobile artifactual echocardiographic manifestation of prolapsed posterior leaflet of tricuspid valve has not been reported in the literature.
