Abstract: Objective To summarize the experience of tricuspid annuloplasty in the clinical appliance and explore its implication in the management of cardiac valvular diseases.Method Authors reviewed the surgical treatment of tricuspid insufficiency in 55 cases from Jun,1996. to Dec, 2004, retrospectively. Of the 55 patients, 46 cases were rheumatic heart disease, 4 were degenerative heart disease, 3 were congenital pulmonary artery stenosis,1 was Ebstein's anomaly,one of coronary heart disease,mitral insuffi-ciency,tricuspid insufficiency,left ventricular aneurysm each.32 cases underwent tricuspid annuloplasty with modified Kay method, 23 with DeVega annuloplasty.Results There were one case postoperational death, 4 cases of light tricuspid regurgitation within half-year follow-up, 7 cases of light tricuspid regurgitation within 5-year follow-up and 2 cases of sever tricuspid regurgitation.Conclusion Correct selection of tricuspid annuloplasty can help prevent early postoperational right ventricle diastolic overload, right ventricle failure and congestion of systemic circulation.
