Transthoracic echocardiography allows noninvasive assessment of the structure and function of the great vessels of the heart. We report a case of a 70-year-old man who had an isolated, mildly obstructive, supravalvular pulmonary artery ridge that was detected incidentally with transthoracic echocardiography. This report confirms the utility of transthoracic echocardiography in the detection of this condition and discusses quantification of this rare anomaly.
