The valves in our heart enable blood to flow in the right direction. When there are problems with any of the valves, this can lead to serious complications, like heart failure. We look at what happens when a condition called tricuspid valve regurgitation develops, and recent advances in surgical treatment. Joining us from Institut Jantung Negara, the first hospital in Asia to perform a new valve replacement procedure, is Dato’ Dr Azmee Mohd Ghazi, Clinical Director of IJN’s Heart Failure & Heart Transplant Centre, to explain how this procedure gives hope to patients who previously could not undergo open-heart surgery.
