ABSTRACT: Congenital right ventricular diverticula and aneurysms are rare. Clinically, a diverticulum is difficult to distinguish from an aneurysm. Four diverse right ventricular cameral defects or right ventricular outpouches (RVOs) are described together with the management of each. Surgery may be necessary if an RVO has thin walls. However, if an RVO is composed of uniform thick contractile walls, conservative follow-up care likely is appropriate.
