About the disease

Tricuspid valve insufficiency, also called tricuspid regurgitation, is the abnormal function of tricuspid heart valve. There are four main valves in the human heart: aortic, mitral, pulmonary and tricuspid. The tricuspid valve is located between the right atrium and ventricle. In tricuspid valve insufficiency the valve is too leaky and blood goes not further, but backwards. Tricuspid valve diseases usually appear in combination with dysfunctions of other valves, that are interconnected with each other.

The tricuspid valve insufficiency causes are:

  • Infection
  • Congenital heart pathology
  • Aortic valve disease which affected tricuspid valve
  • Long-term neglected arterial hypertension
  • Pulmonary hypertension
  • Atrial fibrillation
  • Endocarditis

Another common cause is the rheumatic fever, also called the rheumatic heart disease. In such case the inflammation process, originated from a throat infection, reaches the heart. This fever can attack not only heart, but also joints and connective tissue.

Symptoms

Tricuspid valve insufficiency usually has the same symptoms as atrial fibrillation or arrhythmia. They include extremely rapid heartbeat, uneasy feeling in the chest, difficulty breathing and jugular venous distention. The patients tire quickly and feel exhaustion even if they are not engage in any work. Many of them complain of a constantly cold skin, which does not warm even during the hot weather. Sometimes their hands are so frozen that they feel fever with their body temperature being perfectly normal.

Diagnosis

  • Tricuspid valve insufficiency is usually diagnosed during the simple check-up at the cardiologist. The first visible sign is jugular venous distention. It appears due to regurgitation of blood from right heart ventricle to atrium and jugular veins. Other clinical signs include swelling of the lower limbs and an increase of the abdomen.
  • During heart auscultation with the help of stethoscope doctor hears specific murmur caused by reverse flow of blood through the tricuspid valve. The noise is constant, appearing during each heart contraction. The more progressed the tricuspid valve insufficiency is, the more loud the murmur in the heart is.
  • Electrocardiography (ECG) reflects electrical activity of different heart chambers. This is and additional diagnostic measure that reflect myocardial hypertrophy.
  • More modern and precise method of examination is the echocardiography (EchoCG), which is nowadays may be performed in every large hospital. EchoCG allows to estimate the state of tricuspid valve and direction of the blood flow during work of the heart.
  • More serious and precise diagnosis methods include CT / MRI of the heart.

Treatment

Before the surgeon or cardiologist chooses the treatment option, he observes the patient for a certain period of time. For instance, the heart’s condition may improve or deteriorate over some time by itself. To understand the progression of valve’s work, the doctor needs to regularly observe the patient for at least one month, until he can make a solid conclusion about the preferable treatment of tricuspid valve. Sometimes he can even decide that the patient does not need any treatment, apart from medicines that regulate the heartbeat and help the blood circulate efficiently. In other cases, the surgical intervention is unavoidable.

  • The best surgical decision for this disease would be endovascular tricuspid valve repair or traditional tricuspid valve repair (open-heart procedure). They both repair the damaged valve by inserting the special ring which would normalize the work of the valve. The main difference is that the first option is less invasive and performed with few incisions, while during open-heart procedure a surgeon makes one big incision. 
  • Valvuloplasty is effective, but can be applied only in certain cases. During the valvuloplasty the surgeon widens the heart valve with the catheter and regulates the blood circulation through this valve. The catheter also stretches the valve, so that the blood flow can go freely up to the neck and further to the brain. The valvuloplasty is performed during the open operation on the heart under the general anesthesia.
  • Sometimes surgeons may perform the replacement of the valve which is usually done if usual methods of surgery can not be applied. The natural tricuspid valve is replaced with a biological or mechanical prosthesis.

After the surgical treatment patients are advised to undergo the endocarditis prevention therapy. Further, patients regularly see cardiologist for close follow up.
