Tricuspid regurgitation has long been a neglected and underestimated entity; its prevalence is significant, and is increasing with the ageing population. Tricuspid regurgitation is often a consequence of chronic left cardiac pathologies or atrial fibrillation. Surgical treatment is recommended for patients with severe symptomatic tricuspid regurgitation or tricuspid annulus dilatation at the time of left heart valve surgery. Secondary tricuspid regurgitation is a complex disease; this review focuses on the need for better understanding of its mechanisms and quantification - mandatory with the advent of new percutaneous treatments.

Patients with isolated functional or recurrent tricuspid regurgitation are often considered high risk and denied surgery. There has been growing experience for transcatheter tricuspid valve implantati...
Tricuspid regurgitation (TR), particularly functional or secondary TR, is increasingly recognized in clinical practice and when at least moderate in severity is associated with significant increase in...
Tricuspid Regurgitation (TR) is associated with increased rates of heart failure (HF) and mortality. Transcatheter tricuspid valve interventions (TTVI) are promising, but the clinical benefit is unkno...
Tricuspid annuloplasty for tricuspid regurgitation (TR) depends on the measurements of tricuspid annular diameter (TAD) obtained in an apical four-chamber view on two-dimensional (2D) transthoracic ec...
In this study, we evaluate different annuloplasty modalities to repair functional tricuspid regurgitation.
Currently, in cardiology/cardiosurgery the indicators for the surgical correction of secondary tricuspid regurgitationare unclear. AIM: To compare right ventricle structural and functional...
The purpose of this study is to determine the utility of tricuspid valve repair at the time of LVAD implantation for patients presenting with moderate or severe tricuspid regurgitation. Th...
The effect of cardiac pacing leads on tricuspid regurgitation is unclear. This study will determine whether using a smaller diameter leads and an alternate position in the ventricle, the p...
The TriCinch System™ is intended for percutaneous treatment of tricuspid regurgitation. It is a percutaneous catheter-based device designed for tricuspid valve repair in order to decrea...
This registry is aimed to characterize patients with severe tricuspid regurgitation for the purpose of patient selection for interventional treatment and identify factors related to advers...
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.
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.
Cardiac manifestation of gastrointestinal CARCINOID TUMOR that metastasizes to the liver. Substances secreted by the tumor cells, including SEROTONIN, promote fibrous plaque formation in ENDOCARDIUM and its underlying layers. These deposits cause distortion of the TRICUSPID VALVE and the PULMONARY VALVE eventually leading to STENOSIS and valve regurgitation.
Backflow of blood from the RIGHT VENTRICLE into the RIGHT ATRIUM due to imperfect closure of the TRICUSPID VALVE.
Component of the NATIONAL INSTITUTES OF HEALTH. It conducts and supports basic and applied research to better understand, treat, and ultimately prevent infectious, immunologic, and allergic diseases. It was established in 1948.
Surgery is a technology consisting of a physical intervention on tissues. All forms of surgery are considered invasive procedures; so-called "noninvasive surgery" usually refers to an excision that does not penetrate the structure being exci...
