Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

In the past, the tricuspid valve (TV) was thought of as a 'forgotten valve' but interest has been recently increasing for the following reasons: (1) multiple studies have shown increased mortality with higher grades of TR severity, (2) isolated surgical intervention for TR is infrequently performed and (3) transcatheter TV interventions now provide a low-risk option for patients with severe TR associated with right heart failure.

Multimodality imaging is used to select the best treatment strategy in patients requiring interventions for severe TR. The assessment of the mechanism of TR should include visualization of the annular, leaflet, and subannular anatomy. Severe TR has been shown to be associated with a poor prognosis, especially in those patients with right heart failure (RHF). Open surgery for tricuspid regurgitation is rarely performed, due to the increased comorbidities in these patients which has resulted in increased postoperative morbidity and mortality. Transcatheter tricuspid valve repair (TTVR) is an emerging treatment option for patients with TR, which appears to be superior to medical therapy. With the rapid development and safety and efficacy of TTVR, there is a growing need to understand and accurately diagnose TR and its underlying pathophysiology in order to determine the most appropriate therapy.

In this issue, entitled “New Frontiers in the Management of Tricuspid Valve Regurgitation” we present recent advances in the management of TR. The goal of this issue is to review recent advances in the diagnosis, therapeutic approaches, and emerging surgical and interventional techniques for the evaluation and treatment of tricuspid valve disease.
