Abstract Tricuspid valve endocarditis with acquired Gerbode defect is rare and can be quiet challenging to the surgeon, often requiring complex repair procedures. We present a technique for Gerbode shunt closure using pericardial patch and reconstruction of the tricuspid valve by septal translocation of posterior tricuspid leaflet, which resulted in a good and competent tricuspid valve with no residual shunt.
