De Vega annuloplasty for functional tricupsid regurgitation: concept of tricuspid valve orifice index to optimize tricuspid valve annular reduction.

We evaluated long-term results of De Vega annuloplasty measured by cylindrical sizers for functional tricuspid regurgitation (FTR) and analyzed the im...

Tricuspid valve annuloplasty for functional regurgitation.
Functional tricuspid regurgitation (TR) is present in many patients with advanced heart failure. The following manuscript and videos describe our approach to its correction.

Durability of De Vega tricuspid valve annuloplasty for severe tricuspid regurgitation during left ventricular assist device implantation.
Correction of significant tricuspid regurgitation (TR) at the time of continuous-flow (CF) left ventricular assist device (LVAD) implantation has been shown to be beneficial in several recently published studies. The most common technique is ring ann

Treatment for severe functional tricuspid regurgitation: annuloplasty versus valve replacement.
Previous studies have compared the outcomes of mitral annuloplasty with those of mitral valve replacement in patients with functional mitral regurgitation. However, data comparing the results of tricuspid annuloplasty (TAP) with those of tricuspid va

[Plastic repair of tricuspid valve: Carpentier's ring annuloplasty versus De VEGA technique].
Tricuspid valve disease has been neglected for a long time by cardiologists and surgeons, but for some years now leakage of tricuspid valve has been demonstrated as a prognostic factor in the evolution of patients with left heart valve disease underg

Posterior suture annuloplasty for functional tricuspid regurgitation.
Functional tricuspid regurgitation (TR) is primarily caused by enlargement of the tricuspid annulus due to right ventricular dilation, frequently secondary to left sided valvular disease. Early techniques for the treatment of functional TR were intro

Valve repair for traumatic tricuspid regurgitation.
Tricuspid regurgitation is a rare complication of blunt thoracic trauma. Due to subtle clinical manifestation in the presence of multi-organ trauma, the condition may not be recognized at the time of injury. Chronic tricuspid regurgitation is well to

The role of annular dimension and annuloplasty in tricuspid aortic valve repair.
Valve sparing reimplantation can improve the durability of bicuspid aortic valve repair compared with subcommissural annuloplasty, especially in patients with a large basal ring. This study analyses the effect of basal ring size and annuloplasty on v

Tricuspid valve regurgitation after heart transplantation.
Tricuspid valve regurgitation (TVR) in the orthotopic heart transplant (OHT) recipient is quite common and has varied clinical sequelae. In its severest forms, it can lead to right-sided failure symptoms indistinguishable from that seen in native hea

Tricuspid valve remodelling in functional tricuspid regurgitation: multidetector row computed tomography insights.
Multidetector row computed tomography (MDCT) may help to understand the underlying mechanisms of functional tricuspid regurgitation (TR), a highly prevalent valve disease with novel transcatheter therapies under development. The purpose of the presen
