Which lesions are not amenable to tricuspid clipping?

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Tricuspid transcatheter edge-to-edge repair (T-TEER) has emerged as a well tolerated and effective therapeutic option for many patients with symptomatic severe tricuspid regurgitation at prohibitive surgical risk. However, there remain several important limitations to clip-based technology in the context of other rapidly emerging percutaneous treatment options for tricuspid regurgitation.

RECENT FINDINGS: Tricuspid lesions pose unique challenges to treatment with the current toolbox of transcatheter clip-based technologies. This review will explore key issues related to patient factors, anatomical factors, and imaging factors that may render lesions to be unsuitable for treatment with T-TEER.

SUMMARY: Selection for T-TEER must include a detailed clinical evaluation in the context of a 'heart team' approach involving multiple subspecialists, with screening for patient/lesion characteristics that make T-TEER suboptimal with current clip-based technologies. Future directions for research include patient-specific 3D modeling techniques, leaflet grasping techniques, clip deployment strategies, and personalized device sizing to increase the spectrum of lesions that may be treated with T-TEER within the context of other emerging transcatheter treatment options.
