Hamandi and colleagues reviewed outcomes for 95 patients who underwent isolated tricuspid valve (TV) surgery between 2007 and 2017 at their institution. For 41% of patients, the procedure was reoperative, following either prior coronary artery bypass grafting or prior valve surgery. Valve repair was performed in over 70% of patients.
