Tricuspid Valve

What are Conditions of the Tricuspid Valve?

The tricuspid valve is positioned on the right side of the heart between the right ventricle and the right atrium. Most tricuspid disease develops secondarily to left sided heart disease.

Primary tricuspid disease – without prior left sided heart disease is less common. So most surgical treatment of the tricuspid valve occurs concomitantly with mitral valve, aortic valve, or coronary artery bypass operations.
