Tricuspid valve dysfunction occurs frequently in patients with rheumatic heart disease and is usually manifested as functional or organic tricuspid regurgitation. Rheumatic tricuspid stenosis is less common and occurs characteristically in the presence of concomitant mitral valve disease. In this report, we describe the clinical and echocardiographic findings in a ...
Shibata Y - - 1999
A 73-year-old woman with congenital isolated organic tricuspid regurgitation was reported. She had neither the history of chest trauma nor rheumatic fever nor the evidence of infective endocarditis. The patient was successfully treated with a bioprosthetic valve replacement in tricuspid position. Operative findings revealed hypoplastic anterior leaflet and relatively large ...
Roques F - - 1999
Patients with valvular myxoma are usually candidates for surgery because of the high incidence of life-threatening embolism. In some cases, the tumor is sessile or presents with a large peduncle: complete excision may then lead to valve replacement. We report two cases of atrioventricular valve myxoma where replacement was avoided. ...
Aoyagi S - - 1999
A rare case of isolated tricuspid regurgitation (TR) in a 65-year-old man is presented.
