Tricuspid Valve Diseases

The tricuspid valve is a valve with three leaflets located on the right side of the heart, between the right atrium and the right ventricle. In diseases of this valve, tricuspid valve stenosis and tricuspid valve insufficiency can frequently be seen. There are also situations where both of these occur. They may occur due to some rheumatic diseases or in cases of incomplete development and structural defects of the valve.

The prominent symptoms of tricuspid valve disease are shortness of breath and palpitations. While foot edema and swelling are observed in the following period, the patient's complaints continue in the long term. Additionally, bloating may occur due to fluid accumulation in the abdominal area.
