Functional tricuspid regurgitation (FTR) is the most frequent etiology of tricuspid valve pathology in Western countries. In the last years, many investigators have reported evidence in favor of a more aggressive surgical approach to FTR and interest has been growing in the physiopathology and treatment of FTR. The purpose of this editorial is to explore the anatomical basis, pathophysiology, therapeutic approaches and the perspectives of treatment.
