Abstract

Transcatheter tricuspid valve-in-ring implantation has emerged as a potential alternative to surgery for high-risk patients with symptomatic severe tricuspid regurgitation that recurs after surgical ring repair. The worldwide experience remains limited. We report a case of unsuccessful transfemoral tricuspid valve-in-ring implantation (using an Edwards SAPIEN 3 valve, Edwards Lifesciences, Irvine, CA) and literature review. The rigidity, open shape, and open configuration of the ring may lead to imperfect positioning, resulting in severe paravalvular leak. Particular attention should be paid to sizing and wire position with respect to the ring while implanting the valve.
