Dr. Aklog describes what a tricuspid valve is.
So you know the tricuspid valve, and just to review, is the valve which is on the right side of the heart, the part of the heart that pumps the blood from the body to the lungs. It’s the inlet valve; it’s the valve that prevents the blood from going backwards and kind of backing up into the tissues of the body.
