    Tricuspid valve disease, particularly tricuspid regurgitation, is a highly prevalent condition with complex pathophysiology and long-term adverse consequences. In this Review, Rodés-Cabau and colleagues discuss the latest insights on the natural history and clinical and imaging assessment of tricuspid valve disease, highlighting the surgical management and emerging transcatheter therapies that are transforming clinical practice for this challenging disease.

    In this Review, Boffa and Koschinsky discuss the role of lipoprotein(a) (Lp(a)) as a risk factor for atherothrombotic cardiovascular disease and calcific aortic valve disease, highlighting the important function of oxidized phospholipid modifications of Lp(a), which elicit harmful signalling processes in the arterial wall and the valve leaflet, in mediating the effects of this lipoprotein on both disorders.
