Tricuspid valve

What is Tricuspid valve?

The tricuspid valve forms the boundary between the right ventricle and atrium. Blood collects into the right atrium, and it must flow through the tricuspid valve before entering the right ventricle. The term "tricuspid" refers to how the valve is constructed. It contains three flap-like cusps, and when closed these cusps keep blood from regressing back into the right atrium.
