AbstractA 34-year-old woman was referred to our hospital for inspection before
operation for liver transplantation as a donor for her son. She had no
symptoms and remarkable medical history. Echocardiography showed a
defect in lower part of the atrial septum with a cleft of left
atrioventricular valve and right atrioventricular valve regurgitation.
She was diagnosed as incomplete atrioventricular septal defect for the
first time. She underwent double valve repair and patch closure of the
atrioventricular septal defect. It is a rare case for atrioventricular
septal defect in adulthood incidentally detected without symptoms.
