Repeated surgery – prosthetic tricuspid valve prosthesis biological Carpentier–Edwards Lifesciences № 31, closure of the fistula prosthetic mitral valve was performed to the patient with severe right ventricular failure (right ventricular ejection fraction 41%). Preparations for the surgery made difficult severe heart failure, chronic renal failure and anemia. The purpose of the monitoring was to determine the possibility of the re-surgical correction of tricuspid insufficiency in patients with high risk of re-surgery, given the existence of a long-term right ventricular failure, issued earlier in 2001 surgery mitral and aortic valve.
