Tricuspid Valve Anomalies
In the pediatric population, surgical repair of the tricuspid valve may be required for tricuspid insufficiency or stenosis, Ebstein’s anomaly, or other rare lesions. Operations are carried out working through a right atriotomy using cardiopulmonary bypass, moderate hypothermia (26°C), aortic cross-clamping and cardioplegia, profound local cardiac cooling, and left ventricular venting. Children with tricuspid atresia require single ventricle surgery and this is covered in Chapter 6.
