Risultato della ricerca: Contributo in rivistaArticolo in rivista


Functional tricuspid valve regurgitation in the contest of mitral valve disease is a highly prevalent disease. We describe a ringless technique that combines restrictive annuloplasty (De Vega) with posterior tricuspid leaflet obliteration (Kay) used for patients with less-than-severe functional tricuspid valve regurgitation undergoing mitral valve surgery. The technique has been in use at our center since 2012, showing promising long-term echocardiographic results, with stable reduction of the annulus size and stable reduction of the degree of regurgitation.
