Tricuspid regurgitation is a common fnding in patients with left-sided heart disease with prognostic implications. In addition, isolated tricuspid valve surgery is associated with high mortality and is infrequently performed. Hence, a largely unmet clinical need exists and less invasive therapeutic options are emerging: multiple percutaneous therapies have been developed, including tricuspid valve repair or replacement. This review aims to provide an overview with diagnostic and clinical perspectives, potential challenges and future directions.
