Cardiopulmonary disease is a major cause of morbidity and mortality in persons with sickle cell disease (SCD). Tricuspid regurgitant jet velocity (TRJV) and predicted forced expiratory volume in 1 s (FEV1%) predicted are independently associated with death in SCD. The goal of this study was to determine the prevalence of elevated TRJV and the association, if any, between TRJV and FEV1% predicted among persons with sickle cell anaemia (SCA) in Nigeria.

Tricuspid regurgitation velocity (TRV) is the most widely used parameter by transthoracic echocardiography (TTE) in the evaluation of patients with suspected pulmonary hypertension (PH).
Patient case: An 18-year-old male patient with homozygous hemoglobin SS disease was evaluated for progressive dyspnea and elevated tricuspid regurgitant jet velocity (TRV) on echocardiography. The pat...
Here we describe the first implantation of the novel bicavally anchored Tricento® transcatheter heart valve via transvenous transfemoral access in a 74-year-old woman with severe tricuspid regurgitat...
The tricuspid valve has long been described as the "forgotten valve", leaving tricuspid valve disease relatively neglected. However, the number of people in the United States affected by severe tricus...
Performance of tricuspid annuloplasty (TA) in patients undergoing mitral valve surgery is recommended based on the degree of tricuspid regurgitation and tricuspid annulus size, but is often underused.
The purpose of the study is to assess the safety and device performance of the Edwards Tricuspid Transcatheter Repair System in patients with clinically significant, symptomatic, tricuspid...
Patients elected to undergo mitral valve surgery (either repair or replacement) with less equal than moderate (≤+2) tricuspid regurgitation and dilated tricuspid annulus (>21mm/m2) at pr...
The purpose of this study is to look at liver stiffness with a MRI sequence called Magnetic Resonance Elastography (MRE). The study will let the investigators know whether the subject's li...
Patients elected to undergo any type of left-sided valve surgery (either repair or replacement) with non severe tricuspid regurgitation and tricuspid annular dilation will be screened. Con...
The aim of this study was to investigate the procedural feasibility and 30-day results of transcatheter tricuspid valve repair using the MitraClip® system (Abbott Vascular) in selected, h...
The pathologic narrowing of the orifice of the TRICUSPID VALVE. This hinders the emptying of RIGHT ATRIUM leading to elevated right atrial pressure and systemic venous congestion. Tricuspid valve stenosis is almost always due to RHEUMATIC FEVER.
Abnormal protrusion of one or more of the leaflets of TRICUSPID VALVE into the RIGHT ATRIUM during SYSTOLE. This allows the backflow of blood into right atrium leading to TRICUSPID VALVE INSUFFICIENCY; SYSTOLIC MURMURS. Its most common cause is not primary valve abnormality but rather the dilation of the RIGHT VENTRICLE and the tricuspid annulus.
Heart murmurs which are systolic in timing. They occur between the first and the second HEART SOUNDS, between the closure of MITRAL VALVE and TRICUSPID VALVE and the closure of semilunar aortic and pulmonary valves. Systolic murmurs include ejection murmurs and regurgitant murmurs.
Measurement of the index of refraction (the ratio of the velocity of light or other radiation in the first of two media to its velocity in the second as it passes from one into the other).
Backflow of blood from the RIGHT VENTRICLE into the RIGHT ATRIUM due to imperfect closure of the TRICUSPID VALVE.
