Curr Cardiol Rep. 2019 May 18;21(7):54
Authors: Fishbein GA, Fishbein MC
PURPOSE OF REVIEW: This review describes the normal structure and pathologic changes that affect the right-sided cardiac valves and chambers.
RECENT FINDINGS: The anatomy and pathology described have been known for many years. Knowledge of these findings has gained relevance. The pattern of endocarditis is changing. New diagnostic techniques have allowed better characterization of lesions responsible for cardiac dysfunction. Novel, less invasive interventions have made recognition of abnormalities more clinically relevant. There are many different pathologic entities that can affect the right-sided cardiac valves. These are discussed in this review.
