Diagnostic Tools

  • Cardiac Catheterization
  • X-ray
  • ECG
  • Echocardiogram

Treatment

  • Tricuspid valve repair surgery corrects tricuspid insufficiency; the damaged valve is strengthened and shortened to help the valve close more tightly.
  • Tricuspid valve replacement surgery corrects both tricuspid stenosis and insufficiency
  • Valve replacement with mechanical valves created from manmade materials, which require long-term blood thinning with warfarin medication
  • Valve replacement with biological (tissue) valves. Learn more about heart valve surgery.
