Tricuspid regurgitation following heart transplantation can become a severe problem in a subset of patients, where medical therapy fails. Operative findings are described and results of subsequent results with surgical intervention including repair and replacement are analysed. Although follow-up is short, tricuspid replacement seems superior to reconstruction following heart transplantation. Best results are obtained, if replacement is performed, before right ventricular function deteriorates.
