Abstract

Isolated valvular lesions consequent to non-penetrating trauma are rare. We present a case of a traumatic tricuspid valve rupture in a 51-year-old woman seriously involved in a motor vehicle accident 20 years earlier. She underwent tricuspid valve replacement performed via a minimally invasive thoracotomy in the right fourth intercostal space. The advantages of minimally invasive thoracotomy are discussed.
