Aim of the present study was to observe the types of chordae tendinae present in tricuspid valve of human heart. Morphology of chordae tendinae in tricuspid valve gains utmost importance in cardiac surgeries in recent times because advent in modern technologies in treatment of tricuspid valve diseases.This study was carried out on 96 normal formalin fixed human post-mortem heart specimens. Types of chordae tendinae observed on the basis of their attachments.Chordae tendinae were observed in all specimens. Five types of chordae tendinae were identified namely rough zone, free edge, fan shaped, deep and basal chordae. Anterior papillary muscle was seen providing attachment to 2 to 9; Posterior papillary muscles were seen with 1 to 6 and Septal papillary muscles provided attachment to 1 to 4 chordae tendinae.We hope this study will serve to understand the tricuspid valve complex and types of different chordae tendinae better and it will help in various surgical procedures done on tricuspid valve.

Aim of the present study was to observe the measurements of anterior papillary muscles present in tricuspid valve of human heart. Measurements of anterior papillary muscles in tricuspid valve gains utmost importance in cardiac surgeries because they are the causes of myocardial infarction in recent times because of its variations and detection of these causes by advent in modern technologies which will help in treatment of tricuspid valve diseases. This study was carried out on 96 normal formalin fixed human heart specimens. Dissection was performed according to standard techniques. Anterior papillary muscles were observed and length, width and thickness of each muscle were measured and documented. In the present study, numbers of anterior papillary muscles were present with a frequency of 1-3, with most common appearance of 1 muscle in 66 hearts (68.8%) and least common incidence of 3 muscles in 6 hearts (6.3%). Anterior papillary muscles were present in all 96 hearts. In measurements, anterior papillary muscles mean height was 1.49±0.44 cm; mean width was 0.82±0.21 cm and mean thickness was 0.64±0.15 cm respectively. We hope this study will serve to understand the morphometry of anterior papillary muscles better and will help in various surgical procedures and cardiac treatment done on tricuspid valve.

Concomitant tricuspid regurgitation (TR) is common in patients with mitral regurgitation (MR). While current guidelines recommend repair of both valves at the time of surgery when feasible, high risk patients are often undertreated, leading to significant morbidity and mortality. With advances in transcatheter edge-to-edge repair (TEER) devices and technique, combined TEER for treating significant MR and TR has emerged as a new tool for heart failure management. Recent evidence has shed light on which patients with severe TR should be targeted for transcatheter intervention either in isolation or in combination with a MV TEER procedure and allows for expanded treatment options in patients who otherwise would be limited to medical management. Technological advancements remain ahead of robust clinical data, and thus randomized clinical studies in patients with severe MR and TR will be instrumental in determining the best approach in treating these patients with transcatheter therapies.

This review focuses on the utility of echocardiographic studies in the diagnosis of tricuspid atresia (TA) and in its management. Tricuspid atresia is a cyanotic congenital heart defect (CHD) accounting for nearly 1.5% of all CHDs. It is generally classified according to the morphology of the atretic tricuspid valve and associated heart defects. Following the description of the anatomic features of TA, echocardiographic features characteristic for TA were illustrated. Subsequent to a review of palliative and corrective procedures to treat TA, echocardiographic evaluation at each stage of Fontan was detailed. The role of echocardiography in the assessment of cardiac defects responsible for interstage mortality was also addressed. It was concluded that echo-Doppler studies are useful in the diagnosis and management of TA.

  Tricuspid valve myxomas are very uncommon tumors that could be found after the occurrence of pulmonary thromboembolism, symptomatic tricuspid obstruction, and right-sided heart failure.  Herein, we describe a 42-year-old woman evaluated for an abdominal mass. In preoperative consultation, a tricuspid valve mass was detected in echocardiography. She underwent the removal of a benign uterine myoma and a myxoma of the tricuspid valve. Tricuspid valve myxomas constitute a scarce diagnosis. They could be asymptomatic, occurring in unusual locations and in association with benign tumors in other organs. Our patient was asymptomatic, underscoring the significance of the early diagnosis of this type of tumor to prevent further catastrophic events.

We present the case of a 9-year-old girl who was referred to our service with a recent history of shortness of breath on exertion and fatigue in addition to visual disturbances and gastrointestinal symptoms. A Transthoracic Echocardiography demonstrated the presence of 3 large intracardiac masses in both the right and left atrium protruding into the mitral and tricuspid valve orifices causing bilateral inflow obstruction. The patient underwent urgent surgical excision of the masses which was uncomplicated. Histological testing was consistent with a rare intracardiac location of Burkitt’s Lymphoma.

Abstract Tricuspid regurgitation (TR) is common in patients with left-sided valvular heart disease and is independently associated with increased mortality and morbidity because it leads to right-sided heart failure and recurrent hospitalization. The prognostic benefit of isolated TR surgical repair or replacement is unclear and medical treatment of decompensated right heart failure alone does not prevent the progression of the disease. Recently, minimal invasive catheter-based techniques have emerged as a feasible and effective option for TR treatment in selected high-risk patients who would clinically benefit from tricuspid valve repair. We provide an overview of the current state of transcatheter TR treatment using the edge-to-edge technique.
