Do both tricuspid valve stenosis and regurgitation result in hypertrophy in the right atrium?

Possibly. Tricuspid stenosis is more likely to cause hypertrophy (thickening) of the right ventricle, whereas tricuspid regurgitation is more likely to cause dilatation, where the chamber increases in volume without much thickening.

Can both tricuspid valve stenosis and tricuspid regurgitation result in hypertrophy in the right atrium?

Sort of. The right atrium tends to enlarge somewhat with both conditions; it is more so with tricuspid stenosis. Technically though it is an enlargement, not a hypertrophy (which means muscular thickening). Ra enlargement with tr would imply either severe tr or very elevated pulmonary resistance pressures.

Summary of my resent echogram; 1-Low normal left ventricular function. Ejection fraction is est.52% 2-Mild left atrial enlargement. 3-Mild to moderate aortic valve regurgition. 4-Moderate aortic valve stenosis. 5-Mild tricuspid valve regurgitation. 6-Mode

Need cardiologist! There are a number of concerning findings on your echocardiogram. The left ventricular function (how strong your pump is) is just a little low; I'm not that concerned about that. The valves, especially aortic, are the biggest problem: to have both aortic regurgitation (back flow across the valve) and narrowing (stenosis) is very concerning. Follow up soon with your cardiologist. Good wishes:) Read more...
