The tricuspid valve is frequently affected in adults with congenital heart disease (CHD). Disease of this valve can occur primarily or develop secondary to changes in the right ventricle caused by other defects. Quantitative echocardiographic assessment of tricuspid regurgitation is essential to assess its cause and prognosis. Treatment options vary depending on the underlying defect and right ventricular function. Surgical management of tricuspid valve disease is complex and evolving.
