Management of Tricuspid Regurgitation: The Role of Transcatheter Therapies


Taramasso, Maurizio; Calen, Christelle; Guidotti, Andrea; Kuwata, Shingo; Biefer, Hector Rodriguez Cetina; Nietlispach, Fabian; Zuber, Michel; Maisano, Francesco (2017). Management of Tricuspid Regurgitation: The Role of Transcatheter Therapies. ICR Interventional cardiology, 12(1):51-55.

Abstract

Surgical treatment is the gold standard treatment of functional tricuspid regurgitation (FTR) but this carries high risks of morbidity and mortality. Percutaneous procedures are an attractive alternative to surgery for selected patients deemed to be high-risk surgical candidates. A number of tricuspid transcatheter devices have been developed to treat FTR, but at present, evidence of their efficacy and safety is scarce. Preliminary data have shown promising results, but ongoing and future studies will provide a clearer picture of the benefits of these new techniques.
