A mid to late systolic ejection murmur is heard at the left sternal edge and apex. The murmur typically increases with Valsalva maneuver. When mitral regurgitation is present, an apical, holosystolic murmur is heard and may be accompanied by an S3. The chest and abdominal examinations are normal.

7). When contractile dysfunction involves the right ventricle, which it does in approximately two-thirds of patients with idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy, the right heart chambers dilate with the concomitant onset of tricuspid valve regurgitation. Right and left sided atrioventricular valve regurgitation are frequently present in dilated cardiomyopathy and can be demonstrated unequivocally with color Doppler velocity flow mapping. 8). This type of cardiomyopathy predominantly affects the left ventricle, but may occasionally involve both ventricles.

The peak velocity of the tricuspid regurgitant jet is used to estimate pulmonary artery systolic pressure, which has prognostic value for conservative and surgical management of patients with valvular and myocardial disease. Pulmonary artery pressure can be calculated, providing the pulmonary valve is not stenosed, as follows. The Bernoulli equation is used to assess the pressure difference across the tricuspid valve from the peak velocity of the regurgitant jet (4V2). 6 The tricuspid valve, and more rarely the pulmonary valve, may be the site of infective or non-infective thrombotic endocarditis either with or without left heart involvement in systemic illness with immune deficiency syndromes or intravenous drug abuse.
