Diseases of the Tricuspid and Pulmonary Valve

Right-sided vlavular disorders are discussed in this chapter, including cases of TV prolapse, tricuspid prosthesis restenosis, subvalvular PS, and carcinoid syndrome.
The TV is the largest cardiac valve and the PV has thinner leaflets. 3D zoom mode is preferable for assessment for TV and PV leaflets whereas 3D full volume is better for regurgitation and valvular supporting structures.
