PMID:  8147657     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Atrioventricular valvular regurgitation is a known complication after cardiac transplantation. In this communication, we describe a case of progressively severe tricuspid insufficiency that ultimately necessitated tricuspid valve replacement. The patient has done well clinically since valve replacement, and a postoperative cardiac catheterization demonstrated normal right heart hemodynamics. A discussion of proposed causes and a review of the literature are provided.
