Stenosis of the Tricuspid Valve

  • C. P. Bailey


The tricuspid or right atrioventricular valve is significantly larger than the mitral, is of more delicate construction and is divided into three major leaflets rather than two. These two valves are otherwise similar in structure and function. The chief differences are related to the considerable disparity between the pressures built up within the ventricular chambers which they respectively guard. As viewed from its atrial aspect, the tricuspid valve appears as an equilateral triangle standing upon one angle dorsally.
