Comments We have been carrying out some interesting research about comprehensive evaluation of the tricuspid valve in patients with tricuspid regurgitation (TR) using real-time three-dimensional (3D) transesophageal echocardiography (TEE), assessing the cause, mechanism, location, severity, and cardiac response to TR.
