New Percutaneous Options for the Treatment of Tricuspid Regurgitation

Call for Papers

Tricuspid regurgitation (TR) is a frequently occurring valvular disease in the elderly population, the aetiology is functional, and it has a well-recognized prognostic impact. Early diagnosis and mechanical correction of TR has a significant impact on the natural history of this valvular condition, but this is complicated by the fact that the majority of patients are asymptomatic, despite having moderate-to-severe TR. Multimodality imaging, in particular echocardiography, is paramount in determining the mechanism, severity, and potential treatment options of TR. Patients with symptomatic severe TR often have multiple comorbidities and present with advanced tricuspid valve and right ventricular remodeling, thus limiting the possibility of surgical repair. Percutaneous treatment of TR is becoming an attractive alternative treatment option for patients at high risk of surgery.

In this special issue, we will focus our attention on the recent developments in the field of percutaneous treatment of TR, focusing our attention on multimodality imaging of TR, patient selection, surgical background, currently available percutaneous treatments, and future prospectives. The issue welcomes research articles and review articles.

Potential topics include but are not limited to the following:

  • Anatomy and multimodality imaging of the tricuspid valve
  • Surgical treatment of functional tricuspid regurgitation
  • Percutaneous treatment of tricuspid regurgitation: the annuloplasty systems
  • Percutaneous treatment of tricuspid regurgitation: the coaptation enhancement systems
  • Percutaneous treatment of tricuspid regurgitation: the valve replacement
