Abstract

Quadricuspid pulmonary valve (QPV) is a rare congenital cardiac entity. The recognition of QPV has clinical significance as it can cause pulmonary valve dysfunction. It is also important to recognize this condition in patients undergoing the Ross procedure. We report a case of QPV diagnosed by computed tomography with associated pulmonary stenosis and right ventricular hypertrophy.
