Tricuspid Valve

Abnormal tricuspid valves may leak or not properly open. Unlike the aortic valve, the tricuspid valve may often be surgically repaired.

A variety of techniques of repair are used based upon the specific type of valve problem. Those not suitable for repair are replaced with either a biological or mechanical valve. The biological are constructed from human or animal tissue. The mechanical are made from carbon and fabric. Each type has its strengths and weaknesses which will be discussed during consultation.
