Despite the fact that tricuspid regurgitation (TR) can result in significant symptoms, patients are rarely referred for isolated surgical repair, or replacement, and most surgeries are performed in the context of other planned cardiac surgery. In this article, we review the different causes of TR, the natural history of untreated severe TR, indications and timing for isolated TR surgery, indications for TR surgery performed at the time of left-sided valve surgery, and surgical approaches for correction of TR.
