OSCAR INZUNZA, H; ORTEGA F, Waldo; BERROCAL C, Claudia  y  VARGAS D, Alex. Anatomic Variation of the Right Atrioventricular Valve. Int. J. Morphol. [online]. 2006, vol.24, n.1, pp. 49-52. ISSN 0717-9502.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-95022006000100010.

Anatomic tradition uses the term "tricuspid" for the right atrioventricular valve, even though several studies had demonstrated a great variation in the anatomy of this structure. Some studies describe two valvules (or cusps), others describe six veils. Interestingly, it seems to be a direct relationship between the increment in the number of cusps and the patient morbid-mortality. This study present a right atrioventricular valve bicuspid, whit a clearly septal component with one valvule, and a mural component with a wide anterior valvule and a small anteroseptal commissural cusp
