Describes an angiographic technique useful in the diagnosis of tricuspid regurgitation (TR) utilizing coronary cineangiography. Presence of TR in patients with ischemic, pulmonic and rheumatic heart disease; Observation of an abnormal flow of contrast material during coronary cineangiography; Sensitivity of two dimensional echocardiography with peripheral injection of saline in the diagnosis of TR.
