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.
