The article discusses a research paper which aims to analyze surgical results of tricuspid regurgitation (TR) after previous successful mitral valve surgery. It is based on data collected from 45 patients with TR after previous mitral valve replacement who underwent second operation for TR from September 1996 to September 2008. It informs that TR after mitral valve replacement in rheumatic heart disease is a serious clinical problem.
