Abstract

We report on a case of pulsatile femoral veins with a systolic thrill and murmur in a 26-year-old patient who exhibited severe tricuspid regurgitation. The pulsatile nature of the veins may result from the 'ventricularization' of venous pressure with each pressure pulse. The observed systolic thrill and murmur may be due to the systolic reversal of substantial regurgitant flow in the venous system of the lower limbs. This case also demonstrates that severe tricuspid regurgitation can have far-reaching manifestations.
