Detecting Tricuspid Valve Disease Symptoms at Dignity Health Central Coast
You may not know that you have tricuspid valve disease, since the condition may not cause any symptoms. Your Dignity Health Central Coast doctor can diagnose your condition by listening to your heartbeat with a stethoscope to determine if an abnormal sound is present.
If your tricuspid valve disease reaches advanced stages, symptoms can include:
- Swelling in your legs or feet
- Feeling tired for no reason
- Neck veins that pulse during rest
- Less urine flow because of retained fluid in your body
Prevention & Treatment of Tricuspid Valve Disease
If your tricuspid valve disease is mild or moderate, your Dignity Health Central Coast doctor may closely monitor your condition but not suggest immediate intervention.
Depending on your unique circumstances, medication can relieve symptoms, such as fluid retention. Your doctor also may discuss valve repair surgery or valve replacement surgery.
