Tricuspid Valve Regurgitation

Dear Fellow Members

I have just had my latest echo results -- (previously I had my Aortic Valve replaced 6 years ago)

The latest Echo results state that Tricuspid valve regurgitation is present, from my understanding Tricuspid valve regurgitation is fairly common.

Quick question to other members --- Do you have tricuspid regurgitation and what is the management

Please reply if you can as I am trying to reconcile this latest observation by the cardiologist

Thanks

I had trace tricuspid regurgitation reported on my transoesophageal echo prior to surgery, it's considered normal for there to be some from what I've read.

Hi you are correct -- I had the Aortic valve repaired at the age of 19 and it lasted until I was 52 ---- very pleased with that

Had the valve replaced when I was 52 with a tissue valve
