EuroPCR 2019 | TRILUMINATE: Tricuspid Repair with Clip Improves Regurgitation and Quality of Life

Transcatheter therapy offers a promise for a largely forgotten valve given the lack of therapeutic options. Percutaneous edge-to-edge repair with clip seems to offer some hope to patients with tricuspid regurgitation according to the TRILUMINATE. At 30 days, transcatheter repair with clip significantly reduced tricuspid regurgitation at least in one grade in most patients, which

Promising Results for Tricuspid Repair

Courtesy of Dr. Carlos Fava. Tricuspid regurgitation (TR) is more common than we thought. Around 1.6 million people in the US and over 3 million in Europe experience significant TR. It usually has a functional cause and its negative impact on patient prognosis is strong.   Its surgical treatment is challenging, and it is important that its resolution

Is Tricuspid Regurgitation after TAVR Significant?

Courtesy of Dr. Carlos Fava. Severe or moderate mitral regurgitation is associated to worse evolution after TAVR. However, we should not forget the tricuspid valve that, even though not extensively researched, is also associated to a negative impact in its evolution. A meta-analysis of 12 studies with a total 41485 patients was carried out.

More Evidence for the “Forgotten Valve.” Results from the TriValve Registry

Transcatheter tricuspid valve replacement is feasible with different devices, with a reasonable procedural success rate, and is associated with low peri-procedural mortality and significant clinical improvement. Mid-term survival was favorable in this high-risk population. Greater leaflet coaptation depth was associated with reduced procedural success, which, unsurprisingly, turned out to be an independent predictor of mortality.

TCT 2018 | TriValve: Mitraclip for the Tricuspid Valve

The TriValve is a multicenter, international and retrospective study of multiple devices for percutaneous intervention to treat cardiac failure. This is a sub-analysis of patients receiving the most conventional of these devices: the MitraClip. The main points assessed by this study were all cause mortality, unplanned hospitalizations, functional class, the presence of peripheral edema, and

More Evidence For MitraClip in High Risk Patients with Severe Tricuspid Regurgitation

Courtesy of Dr. Carlos Fava. Tricuspid regurgitation (TR) has a negative impact in the long run. Several reports have shown that, in high risk inoperable patients, transcatheter edge-to-edge valve repair with MitraClip is feasible, safe and has good results, but there is still a long way to go. The present study looked at 24 consecutive

Treating Tricuspid and Mitral Valves with MitraClip Improves Quality of Life

Courtesy of Dr. Carlos Fava. It has been shown that significant tricuspid regurgitation (TR) is an independent predictor of bad evolution in the presence of  mitral valve disease. Its prevalence is not low, reaching up to 50% in patients undergoing surgery for mitral regurgitation (MR). This study included 61 patients with significant TR and MR. 27

Tricuspid Regurgitation: MitraClip Improves Survival

Courtesy of Dr. Carlos Fava. Tricuspid regurgitation (TR), both isolated or associated with other left valve diseases, has been associated with higher rates of heart failure hospitalization and of cardiovascular death. Recent studies in elderly high-risk patients who underwent percutaneous treatment of left valve disease have shown the presence of TR to be associated with

TCT 2017 | The TRI-REPAIR and the FORMA Trials: New Devices for the “Forgotten Valve”

Courtesy of SBHCI. Two new transcatheter treatments for severe or massive functional tricuspid regurgitation have showed good results at 30 days, according to their feasibility studies. The long-forgotten tricuspid valve has been gaining more attention with research linking tricuspid regurgitation to an increase in mortality.   Early studies used devices originally designed for the mitral or
