Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Double-chamber right ventricle (DCRV) is an uncommon congenital abnormality usually described in children. It occurs due to partitioning of the right ventricle by prominent muscle bundles. In this case report, we describe an adult in cardiogenic shock postoperatively from repair of a ventricular septal defect in whom a previously undiagnosed DCRV was found to be clinically significant.
