TRI-REPAIR: TrIcuspid Regurgitation RePAIr With CaRdioband Transcatheter System

2016-12-05 17:23:21 | BioPortfolio


The current management of tricuspid regurgitation (TR) is either conservative (by medication) or by surgery, usually in concomitant with other valves repair or replacement. TR can worsen or appear late after successful mitral valve surgery which portends a poor prognosis .However, standard surgical approaches requiring cardiopulmonary bypass and especially second surgery have an excessive risks. Thus many patients are denied surgery because of unfavorable risk-benefit balance. Therefore there is a need for novel devices enabling interventional cardiologists and cardiothoracic surgeons to perform tricuspid annuloplasty by transcatheter methods. Cardioband replicates established surgical techniques (e.g., annuloplasty) using transfemoral approach, without sutures and with adjusted on the beating heart. Similar to the approved indication for mitral annuloplasty. The Cardioband System is expected to allow for treatment of patients that would otherwise not undergo Tricuspid valve repair due to the invasiveness of current techniques.

The Cardioband Transcatheter System (Cardioband) is a marketed system that was approved for treatment of secondary (functional) mitral regurgitation (FMR) (CE granted on September 2015). The Cardioband is an annuloplasty band that is similar to a surgical annuloplasty, however deployed on the beating heart through a transvenous approach. The CE mark study with 30 subjects has been completed and documented significant reduction of severity of MR and improvement in quality of life by Minnesota living with heart failure questionnaire (MLHFQ), Ney York Heart Association (NYHA) and 6- minute walk test (6MWT), in subjects with moderate to severe MR. The aim of the current study is to evaluate the Cardioband annuloplasty system for repair the Tricuspid Regurgitation.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.

Backflow of blood from the RIGHT VENTRICLE into the RIGHT ATRIUM due to imperfect closure of the TRICUSPID VALVE.

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.

The valve consisting of three cusps situated between the right atrium and right ventricle of the heart.

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.
