Regurgitation: If the regurgitation is mild, longevity is possible, if the regurgitation is large volume then eventual CHF is likely and a need for intervention will color the natural history.

Yes: Almost 100% of normal people have tricuspid regurgitation. A very large % of normals also have mr. If it isn't severe, neither will have any impact on your life expectancy. If it is severe, it can be fixed and then it will have no impact on your life expectancy.
