Abstract

The tricuspid valve was ignored for a long time. The prevalence of severe tricuspid regurgitation is not negligible, however, and is associated with poor prognosis. In cases of primary tricuspid regurgitation, surgical options are limited by a high risk of mortality and morbidity. New percutaneous approaches are becoming available to meet this consistent unmet clinical need. This review presents the current available devices that reproduce both the complete and uncomplete surgical annuloplasty techniques.
