Cor triatriatum dexter is a congenital heart defect in which the embryologic right sinus venosus valve persists as a septum within the right atrium. Cor triatriatum dexter was diagnosed in 2 dogs on the basis of clinical signs, two-dimensional echocardiography, and cardiac catheterization. In 1 of the dogs, the condition was successfully treated by surgical resection of the intra-atrial septum. In the second dog, the defect was associated with an incomplete persistent cranial left vena cava and Ebstein's anomaly; surgery was declined.
