Tricuspid valve disease

Health is not Valued till Sickness Comes
26 Sep

Tricuspid regurgitation can also make your ankles, feet and abdomen swell, while tricuspid stenosis can make your skin feel cold or cause abdominal pain.

Surgical valve repair or valve replacement usually cures the condition, but those with untreated, severe tricuspid regurgitation may face a poor prognosis, either from the valve disease itself or because of the complications from the underlying condition causing the valve problem.

Treatment may not be required if the symptoms are not bothersome. Any underlying disorder, such as emphysema or pulmonary stenosis, should be treated when possible and symptoms such as swelling can be managed with diuretics.
