Severe tricuspid regurgitation following blunt chest trauma: indication for emergency surgery
European Journal of Cardio-Thoracic Surgery
A 24-year-old man with polytrauma and severe posttraumatic tricuspid regurgitation due to rupture of all three papillary muscles was subjected to emergency operation 3 days after a car accident. At operation, all three papillary muscles of the tricuspid valve were reinserted. Severe tricuspid regurgitation after blunt chest trauma is an indication for emergency surgical treatment, and can be performed with a low operative risk.
