The surgical treatment of isolated and concomitant tricuspid valve disease, especially functional tricuspid valve regurgitation, remains controversial. Functional tricuspid regurgitation may be classified into defined stages, and surgical treatment may be tailored to the extent of the disease. This report describes current surgical techniques for tricuspid valve surgery and their results.
