Functional tricuspid regurgitation (TR) is usually due to pulmonary hypertension with subsequent right ventricular and tricuspid valve anular dilatation. The correlation between anular dilatation and TR severity is unclear. Unfortunately, there is no simple, accurate method of assessing the presence and severity of TR. Real-time (color flow) Doppler echocardiography, a sophisticated but expensive technique, facilitates noninvasive determination of the presence and severity of TR by the area and… CONTINUE READING
