A definition of the term "tricuspid stenosis" is presented. The term means the narrowing of the opening of the heart's tricuspid valve. The usual cause of tricuspid stenosis is a previous attack of rheumatic fever. Diuretic and digitalis drugs as well as heart-valve surgery are among the treatment options for tricuspid stenosis.
