Medicine For Tricuspid Regurgitation
A leaky & weak valve: The heart is a machine with plumbing. There are four holding tanks. Two upper and two lower. There are 4 valves in the heart that regulate the outflow. On the right side of the heart the blood is pumped to the lungs to get oxygen. The valve that is between the upper and lower is called the tricuspid valve. When it is damaged blood pushed from the top to the bottom leaks back into the top. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Leaking valve: The tricuspid valve lies between the right atrium and right ventricle. When this valve leaks some of the blood flow leaks back into the right atrium. It can be caused by high blood pressure in the lungs, failure of right ventricle or mechanical issues of the valve. A moderate regurge is usually treated medically with diuretics. Tricuspid repair is usually combined with other heart surgery. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Normal finding: The mitral and tricuspid valves are the valves between the upper and lower chambers of the heart. When the heart contracts a tiny amount of blood may go backwards through the valves. This is called physiological regurgitation and is normal. When it becomes significantly more it may cause symptoms. Thanks for trusting HealthTap! ...Read more

Old echo determined trace mitral and tricuspid regurgitation. New one determined Mild regurgitation of both. Does this mean it has worsened?
Not much difference: When your reports say or use words like: Mild, slight, it means that it is a minimal change. So you do not have to pay much attention to it although your doctor ordering such tests is obliged to interpret/explain to you what it all means. Have you gone back to see your doctor after the tests were done and completed? ...Read more

Varies some: The diagnostic echocardiogram that picks this up is so sensitive that it can pick up regurgitation that is considered trivial.If so it would have little impact on function.It can also find it when it is major. These terms and their importance in a study should be explained by the treating physician that orders the test. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Mitral valve: The mitral valve has to open properly to let blood flow into the left ventricle from the atrium. If it doesn't, we call this stenosis. It has to close to keep the blood flowing toward the body, if it doesn't we call this regurgitation or insufficiency. Either or both problems can exist with the valve if its abnormal. Insufficiency is more common. ...Read more

Tricuspid Regurg.: Most people have a tricuspid valve that leaks a little. It can be completely normal and leak. We can use the velocity of the leak to estimate the pressure in the right ventricle (rv) the rv pressure should be low, approx. 1/4 to 1/3 of the normal BP measured by a arm blood pressure cuff. A pfo is a structural hole that everyone has as a newborn and usually closes. No real relationship. ...Read more
Please help! what is the relationship between tricuspid regurgitation and a patent foramen ovale?
None: I assume that you had an echocardiogram. Tricuspid regurgitation is commonly seen on echocardiography. Most of the time, this is a normal finding and not indicative of disease. The velocity of the tr jet can be useful to measure to estimate right ventricular pressure. Pfo is also commonly seen, and not necessarily indicative of disease. More information is needed to provide more insight. ...Read more
