Measured tricuspid annuloplasty: a rapid and reproducible technique.

PMID:  1267915     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
A technique for repairing the tricuspid valve that involves principles successfully used in operative repair of the mitral valve is described. A measured orifice produces competence but not obstruction and eliminates the trial-and-error aspects of annuloplasty. The procedure can be performed with the heart beating, though it can be transiently fibrillated so that the suture may be tied without tension.
