Tricuspid Regurgitation: Edge-to-Edge Treatment with PASCAL

Tricuspid Regurgitation: Edge-to-Edge Treatment with PASCAL

About 4% of the population suffers from tricuspid regurgitation (TR). This disease is associated with hard-to-manage heart failure (HF)—often requiring hospitalization—and with mortality. Surgery in this valve is not simple and has high morbidity and mortality rates due to its comorbidities. Currently, a percutaneous strategy for its resolution is under development, but we still do

TRICVALVE en pacientes con Insuficiencia tricuspídea severa: resultados alentadores a 6 meses

TRICVALVE in Patients with Severe Tricuspid Regurgitation: Promising Results at 6 months

Severe tricuspid regurgitation (TR) is associated with high mortality and morbidity. For patients with high surgical risk that cannot get surgery, the endovascular option has become an attractive solution this past decade.  Transcatheter intervention has focused on edge-to-edge repair and valve replacement. However, their success depends on anatomical characteristics and imaging guidance effectiveness.  The bicaval

EuroPCR 2022 | Jenavalve Trilogy System: Valve for Severe Aortic Regurgitation

Though the different percutaneous valves have been designed and authorized for aortic stenosis with tricuspid valve, they have often been used to treat aortic regurgitation as an off-label indication. The Jenavalve Trilogy valve has recently received the CE Mark for aortic regurgitation and aortic stenosis.  This study included 45 patients with severe AR. Primary end

ACC 2022 | CLASP TR Study: Tricuspid Valve Repair with the PASCAL Device

The study included 65 patients who received endovascular treatment of the tricuspid valve with the PASCAL device. Forty-six completed the 12-month follow-up. At 1-year follow-up, the major events endpoint was 16.9%; the most frequent event was bleeding (9.2%). In addition, there were three cases of stroke, one reintervention, two vascular access complications, and five cardiovascular-related

¿Son las válvulas autoexpandibles una opción válida en las bicúspides?

Are Self-Expandable Valves a Valid Option in Bicuspids?

Bicuspid Aortic Valves (VAV) are challenging for TAVR given its anatomical characteristics and the important presence of calcification. However, current data are promising.  Even though traditionally excluded from the larger randomized studies, self-expandable valves appear to have similar evolution to tricuspid aortic valves (TAV) with severe stenosis.  Researchers looked at the Low-Risk Bicuspid Study and

Good Evolution of Bicuspid Valves with EVOLUTE or EVOLUTE PRO

Courtesy of Dr. Carlos Fava. TAVR has matured over time and has advanced onto low risk patients, but one of its greatest challenges continues to be bicuspid valve patients. These represent between 1% and 2% of the population and over 20% of young adults requiring surgical valve replacement (SAVR).  The study looked at 27,086 patients

SAPIEN 3: Good Outcomes in Bicuspids

Courtesy of Dr. Carlos Fava. Bicuspid aortic valves are found in approximately 2% of patients and represent the most frequent cause of aortic stenosis in young adults requiring valve replacement. Though TAVR has advanced significantly, this entity has not yet been included in the different randomized studies. At present, we have data from different reports,

Tricuspid valve: Is Percutaneous Intervention Feasible in Patients with Definite Pacemaker?

Courtesy of Dr. Carlos Fava. As we know, with higher life expectancy comes a significant increase in the use of definite pacemakers, defibrillators and resynchronization devices. Along these lines, the presence of catheters is associated to tricuspid regurgitation, which over time might become severe, leading to cardiac regurgitation and potentially heart failure.  This group is

Reparación de la válvula tricúspide con la técnica del Mitra Clip

More Evidence on Tricuspid Valve Repair

While still lacking large-scale randomized trials, evidence is slowly building for transcatheter tricuspid valve repair. This work, presented at the TCT 2019 Congress and simultaneously published in JACC, shows that transcatheter tricuspid valve repair is not only feasible, but also likely to reduce the rates of mortality and heart failure rehospitalization compared with medical therapy alone.

Physiological and Clinical Changes After Tricuspid Repair

After the recent announcement by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) green-lighting transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) in patients across the whole spectrum, and given the advancements regarding devices already in the market (such as MitraClip) and a variety of pulmonary valves, there is only one territory left to conquer: the long forgotten tricuspid
