Multimodality imaging to guide transcatheter treatment of severe degenerative tricuspid regurgitation with tricuspid valve-in-ring implantation and paravalvular leak closure.

Echocardiography 2020 Jun 29;37(6):913-916. Epub 2020 May 29.

Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine, Chicago, IL, USA.

Tricuspid valve (TV) degeneration after surgical repair with an annuloplasty ring is problematic as redo operation carries high mortality. This can be addressed with transcatheter therapies to implant a valve within in prior ring (tricuspid valve-in-ring). When an incomplete ring is present, paravalvular leak is commonly encountered after tricuspid valve-in-ring (TViR) implant; however, this can be addressed with paravalvular leak closure devices.

Overcoming challenges in the management of arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy.

Kardiol Pol 2020 05 19;78(5):386-395. Epub 2020 May 19.

Electrophysiology Section, Division of Cardiovascular Medicine, Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, United States.

Arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy (ARVC) appears in most patients to be an inherited disease characterized by fibrofatty replacement of myocytes extending from the epicardium to the endocardium in the right ventricle. The disease process results in life‑threatening ventricular arrhythmias and ventricular dysfunction. In the absence of a gold‑standard diagnostic test and despite the progress in imaging techniques, ARVC is often misdiagnosed and earlier detection of the disease is challenging. Read More

Mechanics and Microstructure of the Atrioventricular Heart Valve Chordae Tendineae: A Review.

Bioengineering (Basel) 2020 Mar 12;7(1). Epub 2020 Mar 12.

Biomechanics and Biomaterials Design Laboratory, School of Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering, The University of Oklahoma, Norman, OK 73019, USA.

The atrioventricular heart valves (AHVs) are responsible for directing unidirectional blood flow through the heart by properly opening and closing the valve leaflets, which are supported in their function by the chordae tendineae and the papillary muscles. Specifically, the chordae tendineae are critical to distributing forces during systolic closure from the leaflets to the papillary muscles, preventing leaflet prolapse and consequent regurgitation. Current therapies for chordae failure have issues of disease recurrence or suboptimal treatment outcomes. Read More

Background: The right ventricle serves as the subaortic systemic ventricle (sysRV) in patients with congenitally corrected transposition of the great arteries (ccTGA) and in patients with transposition of the great arteries (TGA) surgically repaired by an atrial switch. SysRV can lead to late complications, primarily heart failure, significant regurgitation of the systemic atrioventricular (AV) valve, and ventricular arrhythmias with sudden cardiac death. We sought to investigate the value of 2D- and 3D-echocardiographic parameters of sysRV function. Read More

Cardiothoracic Surgery, Baylor Scott and White The Heart Hospital, Plano, TX, United States of America.

Surgical treatment of isolated and concomitant tricuspid disease remains underutilized. The gap between guidelines and clinical practice is reflective in large measure of the historically poor outcomes of tricuspid valve surgery. We reviewed our current surgical outcomes of tricuspid regurgitation to determine whether surgical outcomes have improved in the modern era. Read More

Department of Cardiac Surgery, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, MI, USA. Electronic address:

Tricuspid regurgitation (TR) remains a complex valve pathology affecting nearly two million people in the United States. Although it can present as a primary valve pathology, TR often presents as a late finding in patients with severe pulmonary disease or end-stage chronic heart failure. Surgical repair of isolated TR or TR from left-sided pathology has been associated with high morbidity and mortality. Read More
