Tricuspid valve abnormalities:

Ebstein's anomaly
In Ebstein's anomaly, the problem is due to a downward displacement of the tricuspid valve mechanism into the right ventricle and this results in a very large right atrium that partially consists of ventricular tissue and a small right ventricle. This is a very rare lesion. An atrial septal defect and tricuspid regurgitation are usually present. Multiple clicks are also heard due to asynchronous closure of the tricuspid valve.
