Abstract: Tricuspid regurgitation, even moderate, is associated at diagnosis with more severe heart failure presentation. While moderate TR is associated with heart failure at presentation, our quantitative data show that the threshold associated with reduced survival and more cardiac events is ERO ≥0.4 cm2. These data emphasize the clinical impact of functional TR and warrant large cohort-analysis and clinical trials of treatment of TR associated with left ventricular dysfunction.
