• surgical
  • I think those trial to change focus and future direction of surgical treatments for tricuspid insufficiency just, she view more more shelf life. (jenny-and-erin.com)
  • This study investigates the usage of advanced cardiovascular imaging and particularly 3-D echocardiogram, three dimensional position of new insights into the pathophysiology of tricuspid , and a good understand why latest surgical treatments to tricuspid insufficiency are not good enough, 'said Lerakis.

  • Treatment of damaged valves may involve medication alone, but often involves surgical valve repair (valvuloplasty) or replacement (insertion of an artificial heart valve). (wikipedia.org)
  • fibrosis
  • medical citation needed] In regards to primary and secondary causes they are: Primary causes Rheumatic Myxomatous Ebstein anomaly Endomyocardial fibrosis Endocarditis Traumatic (blunt chest injury) Secondary causes LV dysfunction or valve disease Chronic lung disease Pulmonary thromboembolism Myocardial disease RV ischemia Left to right shunt Carcinoid heart disease In terms of the mechanism of tricuspid insufficiency it involves the expansion of the tricuspid annulus(fibrous rings of heart).

  • dilatation
  • The present invention relates to devices and methods for treating dilatation of the valves at the base of the heart by external stabilization of the base of the heart, which subtend the atrio-ventricular valves of the heart. (google.es)
  • In some instances, depending on the cause, the dilatation may be localized to one portion of the base of the heart (e.g., mitral insufficiency as a consequence of a heart attack affecting the inferior and basal wall of the left ventricle of the heart), thereby affecting the valve in that region. (google.es)
  • Other conditions exist where the mitral valve structure is abnormal, predisposing to leakage and progressive dilatation of the valve annulus (area of valve attachment to the heart). (google.es)
  • Regurgitation may be due to a structural change of components of the tricuspid valve apparatus, a lesion can be primary (intrinsic abnormality) or secondary (right ventricular dilatation). (wikipedia.org)
  • blood flows
  • Heart murmurs are heart sounds produced when blood flows across one of the heart valves that are loud enough to be heard with a stethoscope. (wikipedia.org)
  • Murmurs may also be the result of various problems, such as narrowing or leaking of valves, or the presence of abnormal passages through which blood flows in or near the heart. (wikipedia.org)
  • reversal
  • The S1 sound results from reverberation within the blood associated with the sudden block of flow reversal by the valves. (wikipedia.org)
