CSI Focus Workshop

tricuspid valve INTERVENTIONS

WEDNESDAY, june 22, 2022

Dive into this three-part session on tricuspid valve interventions to learn all about tricuspid valve anatomy, up and coming novel device therapies, and nuts and bolts of developing a right heart failure program.

Participants will leave this three-part session learning (1) from leading experts on the imaging knobology, training/tools, and pathophysiology driven anatomy structural heart teams require for building a successful right heart imaging program, (2) to appreciate changes in right heart device selection for “tricuspid” interventions to improve the clinical diagnosis and treatment of tricuspid regurgitation, and (3) from established multi-disciplinary heart teams up and coming strategies to building and growing a tricuspid program 

We look forward to seeing you at CSI Focus Tricuspid valve interventions in Frankfurt on June 22, and hope you will also join us for the entire program June 22-25 featuring a wide array of topics in the field of congenital, structural and valvar heart disease interventions.




Troubleshooting for future tricuspid interventions
Recorded case from St. Antonius Ziekenhuis, Nieuwegein, Netherlands
Challenges of early generation tricuspid technologies
What I wish R&D teams knew about the anatomy of the right heart (humans)

Key intraprocedural TEE images for tricuspid replacement and repair

Teach me TEE knobology for tricuspid imaging
Teach me ICE knobology for tricuspid imaging
Key CT planning evaluation for tricuspid replacement and repair
Building a structural CT program: troubleshooting tricuspid CTs 
Assessing RV parameters by echo and MRI 
Available devices, treatment options and potential improvements
Live case transmission from Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich, Munich, Germany​
Triclip: favorite anatomy, my most challenging anatomies
Other devices

Debate: When to medicate, when to repair, when to replace

  • GDMT: you’re treating too early, let me teach you GDMT for the right heart
  • Don’t replace a perfectly good valve, repair it 
  • Reduction, 2 grade or 4 grade, replacement obliterates TR

Up and coming tricuspid replacement technologies

  • TricValve
  • Other devices
Building a “tricuspid program”

Live case transmission from Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich, Munich, Germany

Finding TR patients

  • Is it pulmonary hypertension or is it tricuspid disease? Where are the patients?
  • What to understand about pacemakers and TR?
  • Atrial functional TR, where are those patients?
Congenital heart disease and tricuspid intervention

Staging interventions: Multi-valvular heart disease

  • What’s your practice pattern: drive-by or staged mitral then tricuspid interventions?
  • Is surgery still an option: what’s the ideal patient?


  • The forgotten physician: who holds the ICE probe, who holds the TEE?
  • Imaging training requirements for tricuspid interventions: are we there yet?
  • Implanting training requirements for tricuspid interventions: are we there yet?


This workshop is part of CSI Frankfurt 2022, the leading conference on catheter interventions in congenital, structural and valvar heart disease and heart failure, which will take place June 22-25, 2022 in Frankfurt, Germany. Drop in for the day, or join us for the full 4-day program providing a comprehensive overview of the field presented by experts and key opinion leaders from all over the world.
