Abstract

Compared with the vast literature concerning the echocardiographic assessment of mitral, or aortic disease, the data concerning the evaluation of tricuspid regurgitation (TR) is very limited. In this review we summarized the present data concerning the assessment of TR. We review the present knowledge concerning the pathogenesis of TR showing that it is extremely multi-factorial, thus, when assessing patients with TR by echocardiography it is imperative to focus on four major aspects: evaluation of severity of TR, assessment of the etiology of TR, evaluation of the mechanism of TR and suitability for surgical or per-cutaneous repair.
