Signs of Tricuspid Valve Incompetence

All the following are possible signs associated with tricuspid incompetence , EXCEPT:

A- Giant v waves
B- Mid-diastolic murmur
C- Third heart sound
D- Pulsatile liver
E- A systolic murmur radiating to the spine

Check the correct answer below

The answer is E

The pan-systolic murmur of tricuspid incompetence, (heard best at the left lower sternal border) doesn't radiate to the spine or the axilla.

A mid-diastolic flow murmur, augmented by inspiration,   may also be heard.
