Overview

There are no specific screening recommendations for patients with pulmonary regurgitation.[1]

Screening

There are no specific screening tests for detection of pulmonary valve regurgitation. However, patients with increased risk of developing pulmonary valve regurgitation such as repair of tetralogy of Fallot, pulmonary atresia or truncus arteriosus may be evaluated by routine echocardiography, ECG or MRI to assess right ventricular size and status of pulmonary valve.[1]
