  • State of the art, practical reference on the tricuspid valve and its role in congenital heart disease
  • Covers all relevant aspects of tricuspid valve anomalies, including diagnosis, therapy and follow-up
  • Written by internationally recognized experts
This book is devoted solely to the tricuspid valve and its role in congenital heart disease. Tricuspid valve anomalies are part of the pathological spectrum in various congenital heart diseases, including Ebstein anomaly and tricuspid valve dysplasia, with different pathophysiology and clinical implications. This book covers all relevant aspects of such anomalies, including diagnosis, therapy, and follow-up. Further topics addressed include the way in which the tricuspid valve may become the “systemic” valve in some congenital diseases, with important consequences, and the involvement of the tricuspid valve in the right-sided heart complications often seen in adults with congenital heart disease. All of the chapters are written by internationally recognized experts and are designed to deliver state of the art knowledge of practical value. This book will be an important addition to the library for surgeons, cardiologists, and other practitioners involved in the management of patients with congenital heart disease.
