Median sternotomy. Pulmonary and tricuspid valve replacements. Heart size normal. Lungs clear.
Pulmonary and tricuspid prosthetic heart valve(s) are uncommon. The right sided heart valves are less frequently replaced than the left sided mitral and aortic valves. It is even more uncommon for both right sided valves to be replaced. This can occur in patients with carcinoid syndrome with cardiac sequelae.
