Özet

Background The tricuspid valve is usually ignored and tricuspid interventions are mostly done in the context of other planned cardiac surgery. Isolated tricuspid reoperative procedure, especially tricuspid valve replacement (TVR) is very rare and carries a very high mortality rate. In this prospective study, clinical results of isolated TVR either through a median re-sternotomy or an antero-lateral thoracotomy with conventional cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) have been evaluated.
