    Abstract

    Neither 'prominent' right atrial V waves nor an elevated mean right atrial pressure reliably predicts the presence of moderate or severe tricuspid regurgitation. On the other hand, the absence of prominent right atrial V waves and an elevated mean right atrial pressure are relatively specific for the absence of moderate or severe tricuspid regurgitation.
