Congenital heart dis: Tricuspid atresia is a serious congenital heart defect. The tricuspid valve connects the right atrium, which receives blood from the body, to the right ventricle, which pumps to the lungs. This can be diagnosed by prenatal ultrasound. Early therapy can be life-saving, but typically three palliative surgeries are required for long-term survival. Surgery creates reliable blood flow to the lungs. ...Read more
Need Surgery: All infants with tricuspid atresia will require surgery if they survive (which most do). They will ultimately require a few surgeries and this depends on what form of tricuspid atresia they have--but all will ultimately require a fontan. But if no other issues, they can do relatively well overall. ...Read moreSee 7 more doctor answers

I have tricuspid valve artesia, and have a pacemaker. i have been smoking marijuana for 3 years, what are my health risk.
No one knows.: You do have some risk from the atresia of the valve, and recently a new.study suggests that there is an increased risk of myocardial infarction (heart attacks) in people who smoke marijuana regularly. Since that study has not yet been duplicated, I don't know what to make of it, but it is something to consider. You might consider cutting back on the marijuana some until the issue is sorted out. ...Read more
See below: The tricuspid valve separates the upper and lower chambers of the right side of the heart. When the right ventricle enlarges for whatever reason, the tricuspid valve no longer seals when it closes, leading to regurgitation. Repairing the valve requires reducing the size of the valve, as well as repairing the leaflets. If that doesn't work, then a valve replacement would be in order. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Tricuspid repair: Whether to repair a tricuspid valve is a complicated problem dependent on the details of the patient's physiology. It is possible for some people to do fine with major tricuspid regurgitation and others benefit by repair. You should discuss this problem with the cardiologist who understands the patient's situation. The data here isn't sufficient to advise. ...Read more
What is more urgent to repair: a severely leaking tricuspid valve (in a congestive heart) or a decortification of a right lung partially collapsed?
Depends: That really depends on the variables - impossible to make a global statement. It would be really nice if some talented surgeon could do both at the same operation. Never have seen it, but it's worth investigating. Don't be put off if the first surgeon you ask says, no. It would be an unusual request. ...Read more
