    A case is reported concerning echocardiographic findings in a patient with congenital corrected transposition of the great vessels and Ebstein's anomaly of the tricuspid valve. This presented an unusual opportunity to study atrioventricular valve closure in a patient in whom the Ebstein's malformation involved the systemic atrioventricular valve. The mitral to tricuspid valve closure interval was 68 milliseconds and represented significant delay in tricuspid valve closure. This closure interval is similar to closure intervals previously reported for patients with Ebstein's anomaly without ventricular inversion.
