Tricuspid valve stenosis (TS) is rare, affecting less than 1% of patients in developed nations and approximately 3% of patients worldwide. Detection requires careful evaluation, as it is almost always associated with left-sided valve lesions that may obscure its significance. Primary TS is most frequently caused by rheumatic valvulitis. Other causes include carcinoid, radiation therapy, infective endocarditis, trauma from endomyocardial biopsy or pacemaker placement, or congenital abnormalities. Surgical management of TS is not commonly addressed in standard cardiac texts but is an important topic for the practicing surgeon...

Tricuspid valve regurgitation (TVR) in the orthotopic heart transplant (OHT) recipient is quite common and has varied clinical sequelae. In its severest forms, it can lead to right-sided failure symptoms indistinguishable from that seen in native heart TVR disease. While certain implantation techniques are widely recognized to reduce the risk of TVR in the cardiac allograft, concomitant tricuspid annuloplasty, while having advocates, is not currently accepted as a routinely established adjunct. Decisions to surgically correct TVR in the OHT recipient must be made carefully, as certain clinical scenarios have high risk of failure...

Ebstein malformation is a rare disease that presents with a spectrum of severity. We use a management paradigm that breaks the anomaly into two groups: neonates and children/adults. This leads to a discussion of management and operative techniques as well as pitfalls. We hope the reader finds our streamlined and logical approach of benefit to this complex and rare disease.

Functional tricuspid regurgitation (TR) is primarily caused by enlargement of the tricuspid annulus due to right ventricular dilation, frequently secondary to left sided valvular disease. Early techniques for the treatment of functional TR were introduced by Jerome Kay in 1965 and Norberto DeVega in 1972. Modified suture annuloplasty is a modification of DeVega's semicircular purse string technique, however, it is based on Kay's principle of obliteration of the posterior segment of the annulus only. While ring annuloplasty is the procedure of choice for severe functional TR, posterior suture annuloplasty is a technically simpler option for patients with moderate functional TR...

Right-sided infective endocarditis (RSIE) is less common than left-sided infective endocarditis (IE), encompassing only 5-10% of cases of IE. Ninety percent of RSIE involves the tricuspid valve (TV). Given the relatively small numbers of TVIE cases operated on at most institutions, the purpose of this review is to highlight and discuss the current understanding of IE involving the TV. RSIE and TVIE are strongly associated with intravenous drug use (IVDU), although pacemaker leads, defibrillator leads and vascular access for dialysis are also major risk factors...

Tricuspid regurgitation (TR) represents a significant disease process and when severe, is associated with increased mortality. Recent guidelines support a more aggressive approach to tricuspid valve (TV) surgery, especially when encountered with left-sided valvular pathology. While annuloplasty has been the standard treatment for TR, it may not provide as effective or durable a repair compared to annuloplasty combined with TV repair techniques. Several of these approaches are discussed including bicuspidalization, anterior leaflet augmentation, edge to edge repair, neochords, leaflet resection and combined approaches...

Functional or secondary tricuspid regurgitation (TR) has seen increased attention in recent times as relationships with clinically-relevant outcomes have come to light. Despite the association of increased mortality with significant TR, the disease remains under-recognized and thus relatively untreated. In addition, the disease itself has not been extensively studied and the interactions between annular dilatation, right heart disease and pulmonary hypertension are poorly understood. However, the high mortality and recurrence rate with current surgical replacement or repair techniques is well recognised, opening the door to transcatheter therapies for functional TR...

The tricuspid valve (TV), although occasionally considered "neglected" is the subject of renewed and increasing interest. Factors include an awareness that tricuspid value dysfunction is influential in patient outcomes, an improving understanding of valve anatomy and function and evolving techniques available to address tricuspid regurgitation. Tricuspid regurgitation (TR) can be classified as being due to primary diseases of the valve or functional in nature, with the majority being functional. Whilst it was previously believed that such functional TR, resulting from left sided disease, would resolve after correction of the underlying pathology this is now known not to be true...

BACKGROUND: Isolated tricuspid valve (ITV) operations are infrequent and the decision to operate is controversial. We report a series of ITV operations to outline the current disease status requiring this uncommon procedure with an emphasis on the results of tricuspid valve repair (TVr) versus replacement (TVR). METHODS: Using our prospective cardiac surgery database, 57 patients who underwent ITV operations between 01/02-03/14 were identified. Median follow up time was 3...

Dale S Adler
Only 75% of severe tricuspid regurgitation is classified as functional, or related primarily to pulmonary hypertension, right ventricular dysfunction, or a combination of both. Non-functional tricuspid regurgitation occurs when there is damage to the tricuspid leaflets, chordae, papillary muscles, or annulus, independent of right ventricular dysfunction or pulmonary hypertension. The entities that cause non-functional tricuspid regurgitation include rheumatic and myxomatous disease, acquired and genetic connective tissue disorders, endocarditis, sarcoid, pacing, RV biopsy, blunt trauma, radiation, carcinoid, ergot alkaloids, dopamine agonists, fenfluramine, cardiac tumors, atrial fibrillation, and congenital malformations...

BACKGROUND: Up to 20% of patients have pre-discharge residual moderate to severe tricuspid regurgitation (TR) after tricuspid repair. Reoperations for recurrent TR carry high mortality rates, which emphasizes the importance of identifying the optimal technique for the surgical management of TR. The present study is a systematic review and meta-analysis that aims to compare short and long term survival and freedom from TR of flexible band ring versus rigid ring for annuloplasty of TR. METHODS: We conducted a systematic review and meta-analysis of comparative studies to evaluate these procedures...
