Clinical, echocardiographic and angiographic findings of a very rare case of cardiac malformation is presented. The main features were tricuspid atresia, coronary sinus septal defect, and double orifice mitral valve. These defects were correctly diagnosed by echocardiography and were confirmed by angiocardiography. This patient was palliated successfully with blade balloon atrial septostomy and bidirectional cavopulmonary shunt. To the best of our knowledge, this is the...
