Multimodality Imaging for Evaluation of Bicaval Valved Stent Implantation in Severe Tricuspid Regurgitation

JACC Case Rep. 2021 Oct 6;3(13):1512-1518. doi: 10.1016/j.jaccas.2021.07.009.


Preprocedural planning and postprocedural evaluation after transcatheter treatment of severe tricuspid regurgitation remain challenging and require further research and standardization. We illustrate the use of multimodality imaging techniques in 3 patients undergoing implantation of a novel custom-made bicaval valved stent for symptomatic treatment of severe tricuspid regurgitation. (Level of Difficulty: Advanced.).
