The increase in tricuspid repair procedures has been pushed by a growing awareness among cardiologists of the hazards of leaving severe tricuspid regurgitation
Although mild mitral and tricuspid regurgitation
were more frequent in patients with BD, there was no structural valve anomaly in any patient and the incidences of mild AR or other valvular abnormalities were similar between the groups.
In patients with chronic thromboembolic disease and large central clots, pulmonary endarterectomy can prevent further propagation of changes in patent vessels, improve ventilation-perfusion mismatch, and limit right ventricular dysfunction, tricuspid regurgitation
and extension of clot.
Compared with an age-matched control group from the Framingham Heart Study, the pergolide-treated patients had a roughly 3-fold increased risk of nonphysiologic regurgitation at the aortic, tricuspid, and mitral valve sites, and an 18-fold increased risk of clinically significant tricuspid regurgitation
Tricuspid dilation is a progressive disease that eventually leads to severe tricuspid regurgitation
(TR), which occurs when the tricuspid valve leaflets do not close properly, allowing blood to flow opposite of the intended direction.
Moderate-to-severe tricuspid regurgitation
(TR) is present in an estimated 1.
An echocardiogram revealed a dilated ascending aorta, severe aortic regurgitation due to a perivalvular leak, normal left ventricular systolic function, and pulmonary arterial hypertension with tricuspid regurgitation
and a large right ventricle.
The modified Bernoulli equation derived from the tricuspid regurgitation
jet velocity and estimated right atrial pressure from inferior vena cava collapsibility was used in determining systolic pulmonary artery pressure (sPAP) (28).
She was found to have an enlarged right ventricle and tricuspid regurgitation
(decompensated right heart because of Eisenmenger's syndrome).
Two patients had mitral and tricuspid regurgitation
plus pulmonary hypertension, and two had isolated pulmonary hypertension.
Emergency echocardiogram demonstrated a severely dilated right ventricle with mild RV systolic dysfunction, mild tricuspid regurgitation
and severe pulmonary hypertension.
