TriClip™ is a transcatheter (minimally-invasive) tricuspid valve repair system to treat severe tricuspid valve regurgitation in patients who are at high risk for open-heart surgery.The TriClip system procedure builds upon the successful MitraClip system, where the MitraClip treatment helps with mitral valve regurgitation. TriClip serves to repair the leaky tricuspid valves by delivering a clip system to the heart through the femoral vein in the leg, and clipping a portion of the leaflets of the tricuspid valve to reduce the backflow of blood.Repairing a tricuspid valve through a TriClip procedure (Image courtesy of

The treatment options ranges from medication therapies, minimally invasive (percutaneous or transcatheter) procedures, and surgical treatments to repair or replace the damaged valve.
