AIMS The multifactorial mechanisms of tricuspid valve (TV) insufficiency in patients with hypoplastic left heart syndrome (HLHS) include structural anomalies of TV leaflets and ventricular dilatation. We hypothesized that 2-D echocardiography underestimates the importance of TV structural abnormalities, whereas surgical assessment underestimates the importance of motion abnormalities, and compared echocardiographic assessment with surgical description. METHODS AND RESULTS Two independent… CONTINUE READING
