Diagnostic Tools

  • Cardiac Catheterization
  • X-ray
  • ECG
  • Echocardiogram

Treatment

  • Tricuspid valve repair surgery corrects tricuspid insufficiency; the damaged valve is strengthened and shortened to help the valve close more tightly.
  • Tricuspid valve replacement surgery corrects both tricuspid stenosis and insufficiency
  • Valve replacement with mechanical valves created from manmade materials, which require long-term blood thinning with warfarin medication
  • Valve replacement with biological (tissue) valves. Learn more about heart valve surgery.

Please note: The skilled cardiologists at MedStar Harbor Hospital can diagnose and treat most heart conditions on site. Patients who need advanced diagnostic testing or heart surgery will be referred to MedStar Heart Institute at MedStar Union Memorial Hospital, part of our MedStar family of providers, as appropriate.
