Abstract

Background: The operative indications for severe tricuspid insufficiency in patients undergoing left-sided valvular surgery are well defined; however, for mild and moderate insufficiency, the findings are still controversial. In this study, we aimed to document the prognostic parameters for progression of tricuspid insufficiency in patients undergoing left-sided valvular surgery.
