Repair of Early Posttransplant Endomyocardial Biopsy-Related Tricuspid Regurgitation in a Child

Academic Article


  • We describe surgical repair of symptomatic tricuspid valve regurgitation in the early posttransplant period in a small child. The tricuspid valve regurgitation was due to injury to the valve and chordal apparatus during surveillance endomyocardial biopsy. The described surgical technique produced durable improvement in valve function.
