Hi, @bjanderson. Here is a response from our experts: In general patients with tricuspid valve disease have more advanced cardiac disease and as such their surgical risk is higher. In addition, patients are often referred too late for tricuspid surgery. When a referral is earlier before advanced heart failure is present, results are improved.

Thanks for responding.

What is the expected outcome for tricuspid surgery if the patient is not referred too late and has no advanced cardiac disease?
