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.
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
