Tricuspid valve


Definition

The tricuspid valve is the heart valve that divides the right ventricle from the right atrium. Just like the mitral valve, the tricuspid valve may also be called an atrioventricular valve due to the fact that it separates an atrium from a heart ventricle. A heart valve plays the role of separating the various parts of the heart to prevent blood from flowing in the wrong direction. The tricuspid valve thus prevents blood from flowing back between the right atrium and right ventricle.
