The Comparison of Tricuspid Replacement and Repair in Patients With Combined Heart Valve Disease
Functional tricuspid regurgitation is common in patients with heart valve disease, replacement and repair both can correct this anomaly. However, there is no data to address which one can bring more benefits to these patients with combined heart valve disease. The investigators retrospectively review patients with two or more heart valve disease and functional tricuspid regurgitation, and assess its long term outcomes.
Tricuspid Valve Regurgitation
|Study Design:||Observational Model: Case Control
Time Perspective: Retrospective
|Official Title:||The Institute of Cardiovascular Surgery|
|Study Start Date:||January 1998|
|Study Completion Date:||April 2010|
|Primary Completion Date:||December 2009 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
patients in repair group underwent tricuspid repair for functional tricuspid regurgitation.
In this group, patients underwent tricuspid valve replacement for functional tricuspid regurgitation.
we reviewed patients who admitted to our hospital due to combined heart valve disease, and underwent tricuspid valve replacement or repair from January,1998 to december,2009. we made a comparison between these two groups, in term of early results after operation and long term results.
