Unsolved questions in prophylactic tricuspid valve repair and the possible role of transcatheter tricuspid intervention


Tagliari, Ana Paula; Santos, Diego Vilela; Saadi, Eduardo Keller; Taramasso, Maurizio; Mestres, Carlos A (2020). Unsolved questions in prophylactic tricuspid valve repair and the possible role of transcatheter tricuspid intervention. American Journal of Cardiovascular Disease, 10(3):142-149.

Abstract

Tricuspid regurgitation progression after left-sided surgery and its correlation with worse postoperative and long-term outcomes is a highly debated topic. Some studies support prophylactic tricuspid repair based on annulus dimension rather than on tricuspid regurgitation severity only, while others are in favor of a more conservative management. Furthermore, the advent of percutaneous tricuspid valve intervention and its promising short-term outcomes has introduced a new factor to be taken into account on the tricuspid intervention decision-making process. We present a review on prophylactic tricuspid valve intervention, covering currently available data, as well as the role of transcatheter tricuspid valve intervention in this equation.
