Systolic pulmonary arterial pressure was calculated by modified Bernoulli equation, in which SPAP = 4 x TRVmax2 + right atrial pressure, where TRVmax was maximal velocity of tricuspid insufficiency. Right atrial pressure was evaluated by measuring the right atrial volume, the degree of tricuspid regurgitation and contraction of vena cava inferior during inspiration [11,12].
While right ventricular dysfunction and tricuspid insufficiency develops in elderly patients, degree of left to right shunt may decrease.
Surgical indications in tricuspid endocarditis include continuous sepsis despite appropriate antibiotic coverage, heart failure due to tricuspid insufficiency, and multiple pulmonary emboli.
The consequences of asphyxia on the cardiovascular system can be manifested before or after delivery as rhythm disturbances, syndrome of myocardial dysfunction as well as transient myocardial ischemia with tricuspid insufficiency. (1-3)
Tricuspid regurgitation in patients with MV stenosis (MS) may be attributable to rheumatic involvement of the valve or to functional TR, As reported in the literature, the occurrence rate of rheumatic MS with tricuspid insufficiency was 22-50%.
Pulmonary artery pressure (PAP) is pulmonary artery systolic pressure and it was estimated by means of using right atrium pressure and tricuspid insufficiency peak gradient.
