Incremental value of three-dimensional transthoracic echocardiography over the two-dimensional modality in the assessment of right heart compression and dysfunction produced by pectus excavatum.

Echocardiography 2019 01 28;36(1):150-163. Epub 2018 Dec 28.

Division of Cardiothoracic Surgery, University of Alabama at Birmingham, Birmingham, Alabama.

The usefulness of two-dimensional transthoracic echocardiography (2DTTE) in the assessment of right heart compression and dysfunction produced by pectus excavatum chest wall deformity has been well described in the literature by several investigators. However, there is a paucity of reports describing incremental value of live/real time three-dimensional transthoracic echocardiography (3DTTE) over the two-dimensional technique in the evaluation of right heart function in these patients. We present a severe case of pectus excavatum chest wall deformity in a young male, in whom 3DTTE provided incremental value over standard 2DTTE in assessing compression of the right heart before surgery and marked improvement in right heart function parameters following surgical repair.

Comparative mechanical, morphological, and microstructural characterization of porcine mitral and tricuspid leaflets and chordae tendineae.

Acta Biomater 2019 Feb 21;85:241-252. Epub 2018 Dec 21.

The Wallace H. Coulter Department of Biomedical Engineering, Georgia Institute of Technology and Emory University, Atlanta, GA, USA. Electronic address:

Background: Healthy function of tricuspid valve (TV) structures is essential to avoid tricuspid regurgitation (TR) and may significantly improve disease prognosis. Mitral valve (MV) structures have been extensively studied, but little is known about the TV and right-sided heart diseases. Therefore, clinical decisions and finite element (FE) simulations often rely heavily on MV data for TV applications, despite fundamentally different mechanical and physiological environments.

Echocardiographic Assessment of the Tricuspid Annulus: The Effects of the Third Dimension and Measurement Methodology.

J Am Soc Echocardiogr 2019 Feb 17;32(2):238-247. Epub 2018 Nov 17.

Cardiac Imaging Center, University of Chicago Medical Center, Chicago, Illinois.

Background: Evaluation of the tricuspid annulus is crucial for the decision making at the time of left heart surgery. Current recommendations for tricuspid valve repair are based on two-dimensional (2D) transthoracic echocardiography (TTE), despite the known underestimation compared with three-dimensional (3D) echocardiography. However, little is known about the differences in 3D tricuspid annular (TA) sizing using TTE versus transesophageal echocardiography (TEE). Read More

Doppler-Echocardiographic Assessment of Tricuspid Regurgitation.

Prog Cardiovasc Dis 2018 Nov - Dec;61(5-6):397-403. Epub 2018 Nov 14.

The Division of Cardiology, Mayo College of Medicine, Mayo Clinic, Rochester, MN, United States of America.

Compared with the vast literature concerning the echocardiographic assessment of mitral, or aortic disease, the data concerning the evaluation of tricuspid regurgitation (TR) is very limited. In this review we summarized the present data concerning the assessment of TR. We review the present knowledge concerning the pathogenesis of TR showing that it is extremely multi-factorial, thus, when assessing patients with TR by echocardiography it is imperative to focus on four major aspects: evaluation of severity of TR, assessment of the etiology of TR, evaluation of the mechanism of TR and suitability for surgical or per-cutaneous repair.

Imaging-based tricuspid valve anatomy by computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, two and three-dimensional echocardiography: correlation with anatomic specimen.

Eur Heart J Cardiovasc Imaging 2019 01;20(1):1-13

Cardiac Morphology Unit, Royal Brompton Hospital and Imperial College, Sydney St, Chelsea, London, UK.

Interest on tricuspid valve (TV) (and hence in TV anatomy) has increased in the last two decades with the awareness that functional tricuspid regurgitation (FTR) is an insidious disease progressively leading to untreatable right heart failure and eventually to death. Medical therapy may alleviate symptoms, while surgical therapy may improve outcome but it is associated with high mortality and recurrence of significant regurgitation. Nowadays, an increasing number of left valve diseases are successfully treated through a percutaneous transcatheter approach. Read More

Quadruple Valve Replacement for Carcinoid Heart Disease.

Braz J Cardiovasc Surg 2018 Jul-Aug;33(4):398-403

Freeman Hospital Newcastle, United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.

Introduction: Carcinoid heart disease most frequently involves the tricuspid or, more rarely, the pulmonary valve and presents with right heart failure as 5-HT is metabolized by the lung. Left-sided valve involvement is quite rare. We describe our experience of 3 patients presenting with heart failure secondary to carcinoid heart disease affecting all four cardiac valves. Read More

Ebstein's Anomaly: "The One and a Half Ventricle Heart".

Braz J Cardiovasc Surg 2018 Jul-Aug;33(4):353-361

Department of Research, U. N. Mehta Institute of Cardiology and Research Centre (affiliated to BJ medical college, Ahmedabad), Gujarat, India.

Objective: Ebstein's anomaly remains a relatively ignored disease. Lying in the 'No Man's land' between congenital and valve surgeons, it largely remains inadequately studied. We report our short-term results of treating it as a 'one and a half ventricle heart' and propose that the true tricuspid annulus (TTA) 'Z' score be used as an objective criterion for estimation of 'functional' right ventricle (RV).

Tricuspid regurgitation: what is the real clinical impact and how often should it be treated?

EuroIntervention 2018 Aug;14(AB):AB101-AB111

Interventional Cardiology Unit, San Raffaele Scientific Institute, Milan, Italy.

Tricuspid regurgitation (TR) is a frequently occurring valvular disease in the elderly population, the aetiology is functional in the vast majority of cases, and this valvular disease has become increasingly recognised as an independent predictor of morbidity and mortality. Early diagnosis and mechanical correction of TR is essential in impacting on the natural history of this valvular condition, but this is complicated by the fact that the majority of patients are asymptomatic, despite having moderate-to-severe TR. Multi-modality imaging, in particular echocardiography, is paramount in determining the mechanism, severity, and potential treatment options of TR. Read More

Exercise cardiac magnetic resonance imaging with pulmonary artery catheter monitoring in carcinoid heart disease: a shift towards early intervention?

ESC Heart Fail 2018 10 6;5(5):953-955. Epub 2018 Aug 6.

Division of Cardiology, University Hospital Leuven, Herestraat 49, 3000, Leuven, Belgium.

Neuroendocrine tumours are a rare malignancy, which can be complicated by a carcinoid syndrome and, in more rare cases, also valve destruction. The correct timing for surgical repair remains unknown. We report the first-in-men exercise cardiac magnetic resonance imaging with pulmonary artery catheter measurements in order to better understand the haemodynamic impact of isolated tricuspid valve insufficiency in a low symptomatic patient.

Prognostic Value of Right Ventricular Strain Using Speckle-Tracking Echocardiography in Pulmonary Hypertension: A Systematic Review and Meta-analysis.

Can J Cardiol 2018 Aug 25;34(8):1069-1078. Epub 2018 Apr 25.

Division of Cardiology, Department of Cardiac Sciences, Libin Cardiovascular Institute of Alberta, Cumming School of Medicine, University of Calgary, Calgary, Alberta, Canada. Electronic address:

Background: Right ventricular (RV) strain imaging using speckle-tracking echocardiography (STE) is a quantitative method of assessing RV systolic function that has shown prognostic utility in patients with pulmonary hypertension (PH). However, its prognostic value for a large and mixed PH population remains poorly defined.

Methods: A systematic review and meta-analysis was performed using the MedLine, Embase, and Cochrane Library databases for publications reporting the prognostic value of RV strain calculated using 2-dimensional STE in PH patients for the clinical end point of all-cause mortality. Read More

Multimodality Imaging of the Tricuspid Valve for Assessment and Guidance of Transcatheter Repair.

Interv Cardiol Clin 2018 07 29;7(3):379-386. Epub 2018 Jun 29.

Center for Structural Heart Disease, Henry Ford Hospital, 2799 West Grand Boulevard, Clara Ford Pavilion 4th Floor, 432, Detroit, MI 48202, USA.

The tricuspid valve is a highly complex structure, with variability in the number of leaflets and scallops. The mechanism of regurgitation is multifactorial in etiology, a mix of functional and degenerative tricuspid regurgitation. Iatrogenic tricuspid regurgitation is becoming more common secondary to pacemaker wire impingement of leaflet function and coaptation. Read More

Surgical repair of massive dilatation of the right atrium with tricuspid regurgitation.

J Cardiothorac Surg 2018 Jul 3;13(1):83. Epub 2018 Jul 3.

Department of Cardiac Surgery, Aichi Medical University, 1-1 Yazakokarimata, Nagakute, Aichi, Japan.

Background: Massive dilatation of the right atrium with tricuspid regurgitation is frequently diagnosed by accidental recognition of an enlarged cardiac silhouette during routine chest radiography. Although some patients are asymptomatic, enlargement of the right atrium can cause secondary tricuspid regurgitation due to dilatation of the tricuspid annulus, associated with arrhythmias and thrombus formation leading to pulmonary embolism, stroke, and, rarely, sudden death due to left ventricular compression.

Case Presentation: A 76-year-old woman was followed up due to atrial fibrillation and tricuspid regurgitation for 8 years. Read More

Aortic elasticity deterioration proves intrinsic abnormality of the ascending aorta in pediatric Turner syndrome unrelated to the aortic valve morphology.

Heart Vessels 2018 Nov 18;33(11):1350-1357. Epub 2018 May 18.

Pediatric Heart Center Vienna/Division of Pediatric Cardiology, University Children's Hospital Vienna, Medical University Vienna, Währinger Gürtel 18-20, 1090, Vienna, Austria.

Turner syndrome (TS) is a common genetic disorder in females with high incidence of ascending aortic dilatation and even dissection occurring as early as in the second decade. Known risk factors (RF) are bicuspid aortic valves (BAV), coarctation of the aorta (CoA), and arterial hypertension. Since 10% of dissections occur in patients without RF, an intrinsic aortic wall abnormality has been postulated. Read More

Emerging Transcatheter Options for Tricuspid Regurgitation.

Methodist Debakey Cardiovasc J 2017 Jul-Sep;13(3):120-125

HOUSTON METHODIST DEBAKEY HEART & VASCULAR CENTER, HOUSTON METHODIST HOSPITAL, HOUSTON, TEXAS.

Tricuspid regurgitation (TR) presents as either primary valve pathology or secondary to pulmonary or left-sided heart disease. Severe TR portends a worse prognosis independent of age, right ventricular size and function, severe left ventricular dysfunction, and increased pulmonary arterial pressures. Surgical treatment for TR has mostly been limited to patients undergoing mitral valve repair since those at high surgical risk are not candidates for traditional TR surgery. Read More
