          Abstract

          The usual surgical treatment of tricuspid endocarditis is valve replacement or valve excision alone without valve replacement. ‘Vegetectomy’, i.e. local excision of the vegetation and leaflet repair, has been previously described and can be applied to cases with well-circumscribed vegetations and little or no valve damage. A case of tricuspid valve endocarditis successfully managed by surgical excision of the vegetation is reported.
