Abstract

Tricuspid and pulmonary valve replacement in patients with carcinoid heart disease (CaHD) reduces right heart failure and improves prognosis. The surgical literature is limited concerning technical aspects of valve replacement in CaHD. Although dedicated multidisciplinary care is required, optimization of surgical details is important and may lead to better postoperative outcomes in these frail patients.
