Abstract

Three cases of intracardiac right-to-left shunt at the atrial level complicating right ventricular failure (RV) are described. Severe hypoxemia resulted in 2 patients and stroke in the third. This was a consequence of right ventricular infarction causing right-sided heart failure resulting in high right-sided pressures. Echocardiography demonstrated the shunts. A review of the literature on this uncommon problem suggested management strategies based on the limited experience with this condition.
