Patients with isolated functional or recurrent tricuspid regurgitation are often considered high risk and denied surgery. There has been growing experience for transcatheter tricuspid valve implantation through valve-in-valve or valve-in-ring, and recently, but to a lesser extent, in native annulus. The NaviGate is a novel self-expanding valved-stent designed with unique features to treat tricuspid regurgitation, particularly, in the settings of severely dilated tricuspid annulus. Herein, we present the innovation facets and clinical application of the NaviGate system.

Tricuspid Regurgitation (TR) is associated with increased rates of heart failure (HF) and mortality. Transcatheter tricuspid valve interventions (TTVI) are promising, but the clinical benefit is unkno...
The aim of this study was to retrospectively compare the characteristics, procedural courses, and outcomes of patients presenting with concomitant mitral regurgitation (MR) and tricuspid regurgitation...
Patients with pulmonary hypertension (PHT) are often excluded from surgical therapies for tricuspid regurgitation (TR). Transcatheter tricuspid valve repair (TTVR) with the MitraClip™ technique is a...
Tricuspid regurgitation in patients with left ventricular assist device (LVAD) has a significant impact on prognosis and quality of life, and its effects on liver and renal function could negatively i...
In this study, we evaluate different annuloplasty modalities to repair functional tricuspid regurgitation.
The purpose of the study is to assess the safety and device performance of the Edwards Tricuspid Transcatheter Repair System in patients with clinically significant, symptomatic, tricuspid...
To demonstrate reduction of TR with durable performance and improvements in functional status
The primary purpose of this study is to evaluate safety and effectiveness of the Tricuspid Valve Repair System (TVRS) for treating symptomatic moderate or greater tricuspid regurgitation (...
For a long time, tricuspid valve disease has been considered as less important than left-sided valvular heart disease. If treated in an advanced stage and simultaneously with other cardiac...
The aim of this study was to investigate the procedural feasibility and 30-day results of transcatheter tricuspid valve repair using the MitraClip® system (Abbott Vascular) in selected, h...
Abnormal protrusion of one or more of the leaflets of TRICUSPID VALVE into the RIGHT ATRIUM during SYSTOLE. This allows the backflow of blood into right atrium leading to TRICUSPID VALVE INSUFFICIENCY; SYSTOLIC MURMURS. Its most common cause is not primary valve abnormality but rather the dilation of the RIGHT VENTRICLE and the tricuspid annulus.
Surgical treatment for severe AORTIC VALVE STENOSIS. Transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) is used as an alternative option in patients who are deemed at high risk or inoperable for traditional open-heart surgery.
The pathologic narrowing of the orifice of the TRICUSPID VALVE. This hinders the emptying of RIGHT ATRIUM leading to elevated right atrial pressure and systemic venous congestion. Tricuspid valve stenosis is almost always due to RHEUMATIC FEVER.
Cardiac manifestation of gastrointestinal CARCINOID TUMOR that metastasizes to the liver. Substances secreted by the tumor cells, including SEROTONIN, promote fibrous plaque formation in ENDOCARDIUM and its underlying layers. These deposits cause distortion of the TRICUSPID VALVE and the PULMONARY VALVE eventually leading to STENOSIS and valve regurgitation.
Backflow of blood from the RIGHT VENTRICLE into the RIGHT ATRIUM due to imperfect closure of the TRICUSPID VALVE.
Surgery is a technology consisting of a physical intervention on tissues. All forms of surgery are considered invasive procedures; so-called "noninvasive surgery" usually refers to an excision that does not penetrate the structure being exci...
Acute Coronary Syndromes ACS
Acute Coronary Syndromes (ACS) is an umbrella term for situations where the blood supplied to the heart muscle is suddenly blocked. Treatment for acute coronary syndrome includes medicines and a procedure known as angioplasty, during which doctors inflat...
