Abstract

Purpose of Review: In this review, we have focused on the currently available transcatheter tricuspid valve therapies, device selection, as well as role and management of tricuspid regurgitation (TR) in the setting of other transcatheter valvular procedures. Recent Findings: In this review, we have enlisted the recently finished as well as ongoing trials in the percutaneous tricuspid valve therapies. Summary: TR is highly prevalent yet remains underrecognized and is often untreated. TR has traditionally been managed conservatively with medical therapies including diuretics for volume management, whereas surgical therapies are reserved for those undergoing left-sided valvular surgery. Although the transcatheter devices for tricuspid repair and replacement are in clinical trials, the experience to date for their effectiveness and safety has been reassuring.
