Edmar Atik

Danielle Haddad Syllos Dezen

Figure 1 – Chest X-ray in AP emphasizes normal cardiac area with a clear increase of the left atrium size in a double contour in the lower right arch and slightly congested pulmonary vascular weave in the upper fields. The echocardiographic images highlight the left atrial enlargement in longitudinal and 4-chamber projection. Angiocardiograms below show right ventricular hypertrophy (A), left atrial emptying delay (B) compatible with left ventricular restrictive syndrome and this cavity with smooth and normal-sized internal borders (C).
