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

3 doctors agree

In brief: 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.
