 To clarify the genesis of a "sail sound" and to determine the beginning of tricuspid regurgitation (TR), four patients of Ebstein's anomaly were studied by phono- (PCG), echo- and pulsed Doppler echocardiographic (PDE) techniques. All patients had two tricuspid components (T1 and T2) of the first heart sound. A loud and clicky T2 was considered to be so called "sail sound". Temporary or incomplete closure of the tricuspid valve (TV) occurred simultaneously with T1 and finally complete coaptation of the TV coincided in time with T2. In two patients, the right ventricular pressure pulse showed two notches in the upstroke portion corresponding to T1 and T2, respectively. The onset of TR occurred at the time of T1 in either PCG or PDE.
 These results suggested that the genesis of "sail sound" was probably the tension of closing TV produced by the sudden halting of the closure in early systole rather than the coaptation itself of the TV, and that the appearance of TR prior to a "sail sound" was a characteristic finding of Ebstein's anomaly.
