    Tricuspid Valve Surgery

    A tricuspid valve is located between the right ventricle and the pulmonary artery. It opens and closes as blood flows through the right side of the heart.

    The tricuspid valve has three leaflets that move in and out of the way when blood passes through the right side of your heart. This video shows how the surgery works and why it is performed.

     

    The tricuspid valve prevents backflow from the right atrium into the right ventricle. When this valve fails or becomes damaged, it may need repair or replacement.

    If you have been diagnosed with tricuspid regurgitation, you will likely undergo a tricuspid valve repair procedure. During this operation, doctors remove any damaged tissue and then sew together the two sides of the valve using sutures. In some cases, doctors also replace the valve with a prosthetic one.

     

    The tricuspid valve has three leaflets (or flaps) that open and close with each heartbeat. When the valve does not function properly, this can lead to serious problems such as congestive heart failure or even death.

    The tricuspids valve is made up of three leaflets that open and close during each heartbeat. This allows blood to flow smoothly into the lungs when the left ventricle contracts. However, if the valve becomes damaged, it can cause severe complications.

     

    When this valve does not function properly, it may cause symptoms such as shortness of breath or chest pain. Learn more about tricuspid valve surgery.
