Figure 13: 3D echocardiographic image (right ventricular view) of normal tricuspid valve (TV) chordae (a: Red arrows). Short, thickened chordae (b: Red arrows) that significantly tethered and decreased the mobility of the septal leaflet (red line runs along the ventricular septum) resulting in a large coaptation defect (white arrow) between the septal and anterior/posterior leaflets. A: Anterior leaflet, P: Posterior leaflet, S: Septal leaflet
