    The tricuspid valve is the right-sided atrioventricular valve, and it is composed of three leaflets (i.e., anterior, posterior, and septal) attached to a fibrous annulus. The cause of tricuspid regurgitation (TR) is more often functional rather than due to a primary valve lesion. Functional TR...

    Rheumatic Heart Disease is affecting the tricuspid valve almost as equally as it affects the other valves of the heart and the fact is that the single valvular disease of the heart is rare in our population.

    We encountered a male aged 6 years 4 months with Kawasaki disease (KD) with severe tricuspid regurgitation and left ventricular dysfunction in the acute phase. His clinical course and findings of endomyocardial biopsy suggested that myocarditis was the cause of left ventricular dysfunction and...
