Outcomes of transcatheter tricuspid valve intervention by right ventricular function: a multicentre propensity-matched analysis.

EuroIntervention 2021 May 5. Epub 2021 May 5.

Department of Internal Medicine/Cardiology, Heart Center Leipzig at University of Leipzig and Leipzig Heart Institute, Leipzig, Germany.

Background: Tricuspid regurgitation (TR) has a poor prognosis and limited treatment options and is frequently accompanied by right ventricular (RV) dysfunction. Transcatheter tricuspid valve interventions (TTVI) to reduce TR have been shown to be safe and feasible with encouraging early results. Patient selection for TTVI remains challenging, with the role of right ventricular (RV) function being unknown. Read More

Stubbornly preserving native leaflets is not always right: a case of tricuspid valve re-operation.

Cardiovasc J Afr 2021 Apr 26;32:1-3. Epub 2021 Apr 26.

Department of Cardiovascular Surgery, West China Hospital, Sichuan University, Chengdu, Sichuan, PR China. Email:

Tricuspid valve replacement is becoming more and more popular at various medical centres due to the increase in numbers of patients with tricuspid regurgitation. We report on a case of a 59-year-old man who had undergone tricuspid valve replacement with preservation of the native leaflets two years earlier, and developed early prosthetic dysfunction, which may have been caused by fusion of the native valve leaflets with the prosthetic valve leaflets. The experience of this case informs us that preserving the subvalvular apparatus may impede the motion of the prosthesis, and that adapting the individual morphology of the native tricuspid valve during tricuspid valve replacement could benefit the patient and avoid re-operation.

A decrease in tricuspid regurgitation pressure gradient associates with favorable outcome in patients with heart failure.

ESC Heart Fail 2021 May 2. Epub 2021 May 2.

Department of Cardiovascular Medicine, Kyoto University Graduate School of Medicine, 54 Shogoin Kawahara-cho, Sakyo-ku, Kyoto, 606-8507, Japan.

Aims: Although the prognostic impact of the high tricuspid regurgitation pressure gradient (TRPG) has been investigated, the association of the decrease in TRPG during follow-up with clinical outcomes in heart failure (HF) has not been previously studied. The aim of this study was to investigate the association of a decrease in TRPG between hospitalization and 6 month visit with subsequent clinical outcomes in patients with acute decompensated HF (ADHF).

Methods And Results: Among 721 patients with available TRPG data both during hospitalization and a subsequent 6 month visit, the study population was divided into two groups: a decrease in TRPG group (>10 mmHg decrease at 6 month visit) (N = 179) and no decrease in TRPG group (N = 542). Read More

Prognostic value of lung ultrasound in patients hospitalized for heart disease irrespective of symptoms and ejection fraction.

ESC Heart Fail 2021 May 1. Epub 2021 May 1.

Institute of Clinical Physiology - C.N.R., Pisa, Italy.

Aims: Lung ultrasound B-lines are the sonographic sign of pulmonary congestion and can be used in the differential diagnosis of dyspnoea to rule in or rule out acute heart failure (AHF). Our aim was to assess the prognostic value of B-lines, integrated with echocardiography, in patients admitted to a cardiology department, independently of the initial clinical presentation, thus in patients with and without AHF, and in AHF with reduced and preserved ejection fraction (HFrEF and HFpEF).

Methods And Results: We enrolled consecutive patients admitted for various cardiac conditions. Read More

Bicuspidized De Vega for functional tricuspid valve regurgitation: "De-Kay repair".

Ann Thorac Surg 2021 Apr 27. Epub 2021 Apr 27.

Department of Cardiovascular Science, Fondazione Policlinico Universitario A. Gemelli, IRCCS, Rome.

Functional tricuspid valve regurgitation in the contest of mitral valve disease is a highly prevalent disease. We describe a ring-less technique that combines restrictive annuloplasty (De Vega) with posterior tricuspid leaflet obliteration (Kay) used for patients with less-than-severe functional tricuspid valve regurgitation undergoing mitral valve surgery. The technique has been in use at our centre since 2012, showing promising long-term echocardiographic results, with stable reduction of the annulus size and stable reduction of the degree of regurgitation.

Double-root inversion for complex malposition of the great arteries with tricuspid valve straddling.

Multimed Man Cardiothorac Surg 2021 03 8;2021. Epub 2021 Mar 8.

University Hospital of Geneva University Hospital of Laussane Switzerland.

Dextro-transposition of the great vessels associated with pulmonary stenosis, double-outlet right ventricle, and straddling of the tricuspid valve is an uncommon condition. Several treatment options are available for this malformation, but most of them are not optimal. For patients with transposition of the great vessels, the gold standard procedure, which is an arterial switch procedure, would usually be performed, whereas for patients with pulmonary stenosis, a Rastelli operation or a Nikaidoh procedure would be proposed.

Tricuspid annular dilation in patients undergoing early mitral valve surgery: is it an old story?

Int J Cardiovasc Imaging 2021 Apr 25. Epub 2021 Apr 25.

Department of Cardiovascular Imaging - Centro, Cardiologico Fondazione Monzino IRCCS, via Carlo Parea 4, 20138, Milan, MI, Italy.

Patients with mitral valve prolapse (MVP), undergoing early surgery for severe regurgitation, are usually characterized by a low degree of right chambers' remodeling. In this selected population, the mechanisms leading to tricuspid annular (TA) dilatation (TAD) are not well understood. In this setting, we aimed to evaluate, using three-dimensional echocardiography (3DE), how right chambers affect TA size and might contribute to functional tricuspid regurgitation (FTR) progression.

Micra leadless pacemaker for bridge use after explantation of infected permanent pacemaker system: a case report.

J Surg Case Rep 2021 Apr 14;2021(4):rjab094. Epub 2021 Apr 14.

Department of Cardiac Surgery, Asahikawa Medical University, Asahikawa, Japan.

The extraction of a pacemaker (PM) lead may cause tricuspid regurgitation; however, in cases of device infection, surgical intervention or immediate PM system replacement is undesirable in the short term to prevent reinfection. We describe a case where Micra leadless PM was used as a bridge procedure to ensure an adequate period for antibacterial therapy and later replaced with a permanent PM system in the setting of PM pocket infection.

Accuracy of echocardiographically estimated pulmonary artery pressure in dogs with myxomatous mitral valve disease.

J Vet Cardiol 2021 Mar 24;35:90-100. Epub 2021 Mar 24.

Department of Small Animal Clinical Sciences, Virginia-Maryland College of Veterinary Medicine, Blacksburg, VA, 24061, USA.

Introduction: Echocardiographically identified pulmonary hypertension is an independent predictor of poor outcome in dogs affected by myxomatous valvular degeneration (MMVD). Systolic pulmonary arterial pressure is routinely estimated based on its relationship with the Doppler-determined velocity of tricuspid regurgitation as defined by the simplified Bernoulli equation (sPAP_D). Experimental studies suggest that the method is imperfect, but its accuracy in dogs with MMVD is not known. Read More

The prevalence of pulmonary hypertension assessed using the pulmonary vein-to-right pulmonary artery ratio and its association with survival in West Highland white terriers with canine idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis.

BMC Vet Res 2021 Apr 23;17(1):171. Epub 2021 Apr 23.

Laboratory of Physiology and Pharmacology, Faculty of Medicine, Université Libre de Bruxelles, 1070, Brussels, Belgium.

Background: Pulmonary hypertension (PH) is a known co-morbidity in West Highland white terriers (WHWTs) affected with canine idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (CIPF). The pulmonary vein-to-right pulmonary artery ratio (PV/PA) has recently been described for the detection of pre-capillary PH in dogs. The objective of the present study was to estimate the prevalence of PH at diagnostic, in WHWTs affected with CIPF, by using PV/PA, in comparison with a group of healthy breed-matched controls (CTRLs).
