Combined Tricuspid & Mitral Valve Disease
The purpose of the research is to determine whether repairing a tricuspid valve (TV) in patients with mild to moderate tricupid regurgitation (TR), at the time of planned mitral valve surgery (MVS), would improve the heart health of those who receive it compared to those who do not.
At this point, the medical community is split in their opinion on whether surgeons should routinely repair mild to moderate TR in patients who are undergoing planned mitral valve surgery, and this study will answer this question.
