A woman in her 50s with a history of rheumatic heart disease with mechanical mitral and tricuspid valve replacements presented to the hospital with 1 week of shortness of breath and fatigue; transthoracic echocardiogram showed no pericardial effusion, normal left ventricular systolic function, a well-seated mitral valve prosthesis with normal gradients, a dilated and diffusely hypokinetic right ventricle, and an elevated mean tricuspid valve gradient.
