INTRODUCTION TRICUSPID VALVE Known as RIGHT ATRIOVENTRICULAR VALVE Consists of the three flaps or cups Situated between the right atrium and right ventricle. Acts as valve to prevent backflow of the blood.
DEFINITION Narrowing or stiffening of theopening in the valve stenosis. TRICUSPID VALVE STENOSIS
MEDICAL TREATMENT• Mild- no symptoms no require treatment.• Medication as prescribed to relief the symptoms only .• Types of medication prescribed depends on the condition of patient. Antibiotics Diuretics Anticoagulants Antiplatelets Vasodilators Cardiac glycosides
MEDICATIONGROUP EXAMPLE ACTIONANTIBIOTICS PENICILLIN G Inhibit cell wall POTASSIUM synthesis in (PFIZERPEN) susceptible organism cell death.ANTICOAGULANTS WARFARIN SODIUM Prevent thrombosis (COUDIUM) and prolong clotting timeCARDIAC GLYCOSIDES DIGOXIN Increasing cardiac (LANOXIN) output by slowing heart rate and increase the force contraction.
MEDICATIONGROUP EXAMPLE ACTIONANTIPLATELETS TICLOPIDINE Reduces the clot HYDROCHLORIDE production by (TICLID) interfering with platelets aggregation.VASODILATORS GTN To vasodilators the ISORDIL blood vessels.DIURETICS FRUSEMIDE To reduce the (LASIX) edema.
ANNULOPLASTY• Procedure to reduce the an enlarged annulus (fibrous ring) surrounding the valve.• Prosthetic ring sutured into the circumference of tricuspid annulus and the stitches are pulled towards to prosthesis .
REPLACEMENT HEART VALVE• Replacement valve can replace to overcome the congenital or obstructive of valvular disorders.• Types of replacement valve • Natural valve • Modified natural valves (animal donors) • Artificial or mechanical valve
NCP 1 NURSING DIAGNOSIS : DECREASED OF CARDIAC OUTPUT RELATED TO THE TRICUSPID VALVE STENOSIS AND INSUFFICIENCY. EXPECTED OUTCOME: CARDIAC OUTPUT WILL ELEVATED AND MAINTAIN.

EVALUATION: CLIENT MORE UNDERSTANDING AND KNOWLEGEABLE.
CONCLUSION• Tricuspid valve stenosis and insufficiency are the heart valvular disease.• Both of them caused by the rheumatic heart diseases.• It can be corrected by the repairment of the valve and replacement of the valve for good circulation of blood in the body and improve breathing process.
