Severe tricuspid regurgitation (TR) with signs of right-sided heart failure is rare after orthotopic heart transplantation (OHT). In some instances, this condition will require surgical correction using reconstructive surgery or prosthetic valve replacement. Repair techniques of atrioventricular valves are now well described. However, the results of the different surgical procedures in this setting have not been widely reported and may depend on the type of valvular dysfunction and lesions present. Herein we report our experience in a group of patients requiring surgical correction of symptomatic severe TR after OHT.
