Summary

Absent right atrioventricular connection, with the left atrium connected to a dominant left-sided morphologically right ventricle, is a rare situation. We report four cases, demonstrating the anatomical correlations and the clinical aspects needed to make the diagnosis. We also discuss the nomenclature of this important combination.
