[Diverticulum of the right ventricle].


We report the case of a 38-year-old woman who underwent cardiac catheterization because of cyanosis from birth. This study revealed a right ventricular cavity hypoplasia, an atrial septal defect, and a diverticulum originated from the free right ventricular wall. Ventricular diverticuli, especially those in the right ventricle, are very rare malformations, usually associated with other cardiac defects. The right ventricular diverticulum is generally non-symptomatic, diagnosed by chance, and does not usually require surgical treatment.
