Tricuspid Valve Disease - Causes and Risk Factors

Different types of tricuspid valve disease can occur, such as:
  • Tricuspid valve regurgitation: This occurs when there is a backflow of blood due to the tricuspid valve not closing properly.  
  • Tricuspid valve stenosis: This occurs when the tricuspid valve is narrowed, thus limiting or restricting blood from flowing from the right atrium to the right ventricle. 
  • Ebstein's anomaly: This is a congenital heart defect whereby the tricuspid valve is abnormally formed, with one or two of the three leaflets being stuck lower than its usual place on the right atrium. This can result in tricuspid valve regurgitation.
If left untreated, tricuspid valve disease can lead to heart failure or atrial fibrillation.
