Gerbode's defect, a left ventricular-to-right atrial communication, with involvement of the tricuspid valve acquired after bacterial endocarditis can be challenging to repair. We report a modified technique for a shunt closure and reconstruction of the tricuspid valve using a plicated bovine pericardial patch. Combining such a repair with a left ventricular patch resulted in a complete defect closure and competent tricuspid valve without regurgitation.
