Abstract

A double-chambered right ventricle (DCRV) is a heart defect, typically congenital, in which the right ventricle is separated into a proximal high-pressure (anatomically lower) chamber and distal low-pressure (anatomically higher) chamber. Commonly ventricular septal defect is found concomitantly in patients with DRCV. In this case report, we present a 20-year- -old female patient who was found to have a DRCV without any concomitant congenital heart disorder.
