In a cohort of 56 school-aged children with repaired tetralogy of Fallot, significant (moderate to severe) tricuspid regurgitation was common (32% of patients) and was related to both tricuspid annulus dilatation and structural valve abnormalities that were potentially related to previous surgery. Even after adjusting for pulmonary regurgitation, tricuspid regurgitation was significantly correlated with right ventricular volume (r= 0.39, p = 0.009), suggesting that tricuspid regurgitation as well as pulmonary regurgitation may contribute significantly to progressive right ventricular dilatation in this population.
