Aims: The case we report, shows a successful treatment of right ventricle endomyocardial fibrosis. Materials and Methods: Surgical therapy by endocardial decortication seems to be beneficial for many patients with advanced disease who are in functional-therapeutic class III or IV. The operative mortality rate is high, but successful surgery has a clear benefit on symptoms and seems to favourably affect survival as well.
