Tricuspid Valve Disease

Abstract

Increasing interest in the tricuspid valve has been stimulated by numerous outcomes studies showing the significant role of tricuspid regurgitation (TR) on outcomes. Primary TR represents a small number of the patients presenting with symptomatic disease. Understanding of the anatomy of the right heart and tricuspid valve helps elucidate the multiple mechanisms that result in secondary TR. Echocardiography remains a primary imaging modality for the assessment of disease morphology and severity.
