I have Pulmonary Tricuspid Artresia

Can you describe this condition accurately? 10 pts for correct answer!? OK, I have Pulmonary Tricuspid Artresia, its VERY rare, includin me less than ten people have this condition. If you can accuratly describe this condition i will rewad you with ten points. P.S. I know the statistics seem extreme, yet they are the statistics the doctors have told me. So if you do no believe me, please do not respond to this question or try to prove me wrong. Thanks! Oops! i meant atresia not artresia. And there is One REALLY good answer so far. FYI, I actually know what the problem is, I just wanted to see how many correct answers I would/will recieve. Yet another edit, lol, for additional information I ve had six open and closed heart surgeries since I was born. I also have catherizations every six months.

Hi I am a 37 year old mother of two I am 5 2 and 113 pounds. In March I went to the ER for heart pain. They said I have a panic disorder. I looked through my file and saw mild tricuspid regurgitation and mild pulmonary hypertension. What does this mean? I have not seen my doctor yet. But he did diagnose me with tricuspid regugitation after an exam. Can I fly in an airplane? Leaving to California Tuesday.
