BACKGROUND Most rings currently used for tricuspid valve annuloplasty are formed in a single plane, whereas the actual tricuspid annulus (TA) may have a nonplanar or 3-dimensional (3D) structure. The purpose of this study was therefore to investigate the 3D geometry of the TA in healthy subjects and in patients with functional tricuspid regurgitation (TR). METHODS AND RESULTS This study consisted of 15 healthy subjects and 16 patients with functional TR who had real-time 3D echocardiography… CONTINUE READING
