Postoperative tricuspid regurgitation after adult congenital heart surgery is associated with adverse clinical outcomes
Cardiac Surgical Procedures
Heart Defects, Congenital
Tricuspid Valve Insufficiency
Moderate or greater postoperative tricuspid regurgitation was associated with an increased risk of death, transplant, or reoperation in adult patients with congenital heart disease undergoing cardiac surgery for non-tricuspid regurgitation-related indications. Concomitant tricuspid valve intervention at the time of cardiac surgery should be considered in patients with adult congenital heart disease with moderate or greater preoperative tricuspid regurgitation.
