ABSTRACT
The diagnosis of tricuspid insufficiency was first made at the end of last century, based on clinical signs. Graphic tracings of the venous system were soon recorded and were demonstrated useful in the forties and fifties. New methods involving invasive procedure or expensive instrumentation have been described in the last twenty years. The present study was made in order to re-examine the value of the non-invasive, graphic methods, which would assure a simple and inexpensive study for these patients.

    Ninety-nine patients were operated upon for tricuspid regurgitation (TR) in combined valvular disease. According to surgical procedures for the tricuspid valve, two groups resulted in "repaired" and "ignored," including 60 patients in the former group and 39 in the latter. There is no...

    Abstract: This paper describes a technique for treating severe tricuspid regurgitation due to severe tethering of the tricuspid valve leaflets. The anterior tricuspid leaflet is augmented by use of an autologous pericardial patch, which increases its size, and hence its surface area of...

    Abstract: Background: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the impact of untreated moderate-or-more functional tricuspid regurgitation (FTR) on mid-term outcome of patients with functional mitral regurgitation (FMR) undergoing mitral valve surgery (MVS). Methods: From January 1988 to April...

    We present a case of severe tricuspid valve insufficiency because of disruption of the anterior tricuspid leaflet with congenital absence of left thoracic pericardium. Findings suggest that tricuspid valve disruption was a result of distorted right ventricular geometry because of luxation of the...

    The unguarded tricuspid valve is uncommon. We describe herein a fetus with a grossly dilated right ventricle and atrium, with severe tricuspid and pulmonary valvar regurgitation. The right ventricle was akinetic, and no tricuspid tissue or valvar apparatus was identified. Colour Doppler showed a...
