Tricuspid regurgitation (TR) is a relatively uncommon complication subsequent to endomyocardial biopsy. We are reporting a 21-year-old male who underwent biopsy 13 times following heart transplantation. Symptomatic TR prompted the need for surgical repair, thus annuloplasty with artificial chordae reimplantation was performed. Mild TR with the preserved function was documented nearly 4 years after surgical intervention.
