Brief Summary:
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.

Condition or disease
Tricuspid Valve Regurgitation

Detailed Description:
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.
