Usefulness of Doppler echocardiography in detecting tricuspid valve stenosis

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

22 Scopus citations


Doppler echocardiography appears to provide an accurate method for assessment of valve stenosis.1 Most studies in this area have been performed in patients with aortic,2 mitral3 or pulmonic valve stenosis.4 Although qualitative assessment of tricuspid stenosis (TS) is possible with Doppler echocardiography,5 there is no information about its correlation with pressure gradients measured directly. This report presents Doppler echocardiographic hemodynamic correlation in 2 patients with obstruction to tricuspid flow, 1 with rheumatic heart disease and 1 with severe stenosis across a prosthesis in the tricuspid valve position.
