Tricuspid Valve Operations Abstract Tricuspid valve surgery has evolved from an almost ignored valve in the past to an important valve that is critical to address at the time of left valve intervention. The incidence of tricuspid regurgitation associated with left valvular disease is quite significant and most common in conjunction with mitral valve disease; however, association with aortic valve pathology is not uncommon. Most commonly, tricuspid regurgitation is functional or secondary to…

Repairing Degenerative Mitral Valve Disease Keywords : Mitral valve repair, myxomatous mitral valve disease, degenerative mitral valve disease Abstract Degenerative mitral valve disease is a common cause of mitral regurgitation and results in significant morbidity and mortality. Mitral valve repair is preferred over valve replacement given improvements in survival, left ventricular function, and freedom from reoperation. The purpose of this chapter is to provide surgeons with a comprehensive…

Valves of the heart ensure the one way flow. The AV valves are located between the atrium and ventricles and regulate the openings between them. The left AV valve is also called mitral valve and the right AV valve is also called the tricuspid valve. The aortic and pulmonary valve (semilunar valves) regulate blood flow from ventricles to the greater arteries.
