Using Doppler echocardiography, the prevalence of tricuspid and pulmonary valve regurgitation was determined prospectively in 173 normal children, aged 8.3 +/- 2.7 (range 5-14) years. Pulmonary regurgitation was defined as a red-yellow or mosaic coloured regurgitant flow, continuing to end-diastole with continuous-wave Doppler. It was found in 84% of the children. Tricuspid regurgitation was defined as a blue-green or mosaic coloured regurgitant flow from the tricuspid valve into the right… CONTINUE READING
