Abstract

Echocardiography was performed on a 4-year-old, mixed-breed cat with pleural fluid. Severe enlargement of the right atrium and ventricle, tricuspid regurgitation, a shortened septal leaflet, shortened chordate tendineae, paradoxical septal motion, and amorphous images within the right atrium and ventricle were observed. Judged by the abnormal appearance of the tricuspid, the disease was diagnosed as tricuspid valve dysplasia. Despite treatment with benazepril, pimobendan, furosemide, spironolactone, and dalteparin, the cat's condition worsened, and it died on day 14.
