Tricuspid regurgitation is a frequent valvular heart disease, particularly in the elderly and in association with other left-sided heart diseases. It has an adverse prognostic impact, with progressively increasing mortality as the degree of regurgitation increases. Isolated or combined (with mitral and/or aortic) surgery remains the treatment of choice, provided operative risk is acceptable. Several transcatheter treatment techniques, currently in early clinical or preclinical study phase, could provide alternative treatment options for patients with high surgical risk.

Abstract

Tricuspid regurgitation is a frequent valvular heart disease, particularly in the elderly and in association with other left-sided heart diseases. It has an adverse prognostic impact, with progressively increasing mortality as the degree of regurgitation increases. Isolated or combined (with mitral and/or aortic) surgery remains the treatment of choice, provided operative risk is acceptable. Several transcatheter treatment techniques, currently in early clinical or preclinical study phase, could provide alternative treatment options for patients with high surgical risk.
