A 57-year-old woman underwent pulmonic valvotomy for congenital pulmonic stenosis. She developed severe pulmonic insufficiency, secondary tricuspid regurgitation, and anasarca in spite of a normal pulmonary artery pressure. Insertion of a pulmonary valve prosthesis and tricuspid valve plication reversed all clinical symptoms and signs of this rare complication of pulmonary valvotomy.
