BACKGROUND For patients undergoing mitral valve (MV) repair, the indications for and results of concomitant tricuspid annuloplasty remain controversial. OBJECTIVES This study was designed to compare a strategy of routine concomitant tricuspid annuloplasty for moderate tricuspid regurgitation (TR) or tricuspid annular dilation in patients undergoing degenerative MV surgery. METHODS Of 645 consecutive patients (mean age 57±13 years) undergoing primary repair of degenerative mitral… CONTINUE READING
