Abstract: A patient with a severe liver injury and an acute cardiac failure due to a traumatic tricuspid valve failure is presented. During liver surgery, massive venous bleeding was caused by regurgitation of blood through the insufficient tricuspid valve. Right ventricular failure, leading to persistent hemodynamic instability, and caused by massive posttraumatic tricuspid regurgitation, has been treated with biological valve replacement. Diagnosis and management of posttraumatic tricuspid insufficiency are discussed.
