Pssst! It's me, the website.

I just wanted to let you know that even though I'm looking quite old, I'm still a millenial.
So I just had a "New Year, New Me" moment and my resolution is to become a new and improved version of myself in a couple of weeks.
Don't worry, my wisdom won't change. You're still going to find the same useful information here. Stay tuned!

Tricuspid Valve Area cm2

How to get an TVA BY DT.
Step 1: Obtain a PWD or a CWD of the tricuspid valve. The flow profile of the tricuspid valve will have a Vmax, typically the maximum velocity of the E wave.  The time from the Vmax to the where the velocity is equal to zero is the deceleration time.  Typically, the curve will have to be extrapolated to the zero velocity.  The tricuspid valve area is equal to 655 divided by the deceleration time.
