Krunal R.Chauhan, Alka Udainia, C D Mehta, Kinnari Chavda.

Abstract
Introduction: Rapid progress in the field of interventional cardiology has caused research in the field of morphometry of the heart to be in constant demand. The tricuspid valve is of great importance because of the progress made inoperative techniques and invasive cardiology accidents.
Methodology: In this study, performed on a 100 human cadaveric hearts to assess the incidence of abnormal tricuspid valve and the number of main and accessory cusps. The hearts were non-macerated and preserved by immersion in 4% neutral formalin solution. Dissection was performed according to standard techniques.
Results: Present study indicates the incidence of 4 cuspidal tricuspid valve is 10%(10/100hearts) and bicuspidal valve is 1%(1/100hearts) and the incidence of normal tricuspidal valve is 89%.the average height of accessory cusp is 15.60mm.
Conclusion: From the above result it will be concluded that this study is helpful to cardiac surgeons in this modern era of technology.

Key words: tricuspid valve, circumference of tricuspid valve, cusp, chordae tendonae, human heart.
