Catheterization and cardiovascular interventions


Severe symptomatic tricuspid regurgitation (TR) remains an undertreated disease. Multiple trans-catheter treatment options are currently under investigation. Transcatheter caval valve implantation (CAVI) has been utilized as a treatment option and aims at decreasing or eliminating the caval backflow that occurs in severe TR patients. Understanding challenges with this therapy is paramount. Hereby we present a CAVI case with resultant non-coaptation of valve leaflets in a patient with a prominent Eustachian ridge.
