Clinical Trial Summary

Tricuspid regurgitation (TR), which in close to 90% of cases is functional as a consequence of left-sided heart failure, left heart valve abnormalities or pulmonary (vascular) disease, is associated with adverse patient outcomes . Due to the increased risk of surgical tricuspid valve repair or replacement compared to surgery in left-sided valve disease TR is often undertreated. Treatment options for the tricuspid valve have so far been limited. Conservative therapy over longer. periods usually results in refractoriness to diuretic treatment. Surgical therapy is associated with a high rate of in-hospital mortality (8.8%), the cause of which is not yet fully understood but may partly be explained by the hemodynamic challenge that cardiopulmonary bypass imposes on the often already-dysfunctional right ventricle. Recently, transcatheter strategies have been developed and have shown promising results. Despite the promising data it has so far not be determined objectively whether interventional treatment of isolated tricuspid regurgitation improves exercise capacity and what role right ventricular function plays in this setting.
