This book provides a comprehensive overview of the physiology, pathophysiology, diagnosis, medical and surgical management, and future therapies for tricuspid valve disease. It is divided into two sections. The first section covers the basics of the tricuspid valve, including anatomy, epidemiology, and clinical diagnosis with individual chapters focused on hemodynamics, echocardiography, MRI, and CT assessment. The second section examines current treatments for tricuspid valve disease including both surgical and medical management. It discusses special clinical scenarios of tricuspid valve pathology such as tricuspid regurgitation in patients with ICD and pacemaker implants and the role of tricuspid valve disease in patients with heart failure and LVAD therapy.
Tricuspid Valve Disease: A Comprehensive Guide to Evaluation and Management is an essential resource for general cardiologists, interventional cardiologists, cardiac surgeons, and innovators in the field of structural heart disease.
