Built upon a proven clip-based platform, TriClip™ Transcatheter Edge-to-Edge Repair (TEER) offers a minimally invasive treatment option for patients with symptomatic, severe tricuspid regurgitation (TR) who are at high risk for surgery. 

INTENTIONALLY DESIGNED FOR THE  TRICUSPID VALVE1

TriClip™ Transcatheter Edge-to-Edge Repair (TEER) offers unmatched stability, precision, and control2,* required for the unique challenges of the tricuspid anatomy to achieve sustained, clinically significant improvements in the lives of patients with tricuspid regurgitation (TR).3,4

  • Significant TR reduction3-5
  • Strong safety profile3-5
  • Life changing improvements in health related quality of life3-5
  • Proven in the largest body of Tricuspid TEER evidence to date3-5

* Based on Abbott simulated horizontal tensile testing.
 

A state-of-the-art treatment option for patients at high risk for surgery

TriClip TEER is a low-risk, minimally invasive, non-surgical treatment option for symptomatic patients with severe tricuspid regurgitation (TR) who are at high-risk for surgery and are not seeing improvement from medical therapy alone.

  • Transcatheter beating heart procedure - no cardiopulmonary bypass
  • Allows for real-time positioning and repositioning to optimize TR reduction
  • Femoral venous access
  • Can be used in a standard cath lab or hybrid room
  • No pre-procedural CT required
  • Fast recovery times; many patients go home the next day
     
  • Patients with severe tricuspid regurgitation have significantly impaired quality of life
    • Shortness of breath
    • Peripheral edema
    • Ascites
    • Fatigue
    • Declining exercise capacity
       
  • Current treatment options have limitations

    For many patients with functional tricuspid regurgitation (FTR), medical management is not enough.

    Medical management for TR has little impact on survival6

    66%

    of patients with severe FTR die within 5 years of medical management6


    Most patients receive medical management until right heart failure or end-organ dysfunction appears.7

  • Surgery is high risk and often denied8-9

    Surgery for TR is seldom performed. Factors prohibiting surgery include:

    • High operative risk (6-16% in-hospital mortality)
    • Multiple comorbidities
    • Advanced age
    • Lack of effectiveness


    Long-term survival estimates for all patients undergoing surgical tricuspid valve replacement or repair10

  • Flexes and extends delivery catheter to steer down to the valve plane

  • Enables movement in septal or lateral direction

  • Designed for the tricuspid anatomy
    • Provides adequate height over the valve
    • Maintains coaxial position during steering and positioning
    • Allows sweeping away from the septum to optimize delivery catheter while maintaining perpendicularity to the plane of the valve
  • Straightens and curves guide for height adjustment above the valve

  • Designed for direct access to the tricuspid valve

    • Provides stability and precision during steering and positioning
    • Multiaxis steering to enable navigation across all lines of coaptation
  • Confirm and optimize leaflet grasping

  • Simultaneous implant and gripper detachment

  • Building on a legacy of unmatched TEER expertise1

    TriClip™ implants use the same proven leaflet technology as our MitraClip™ Transcatheter Edge-to-Edge Repair (TEER). TriClip TEER is the clip-based technology physicians know and trust, with a delivery system uniquely designed for the tricuspid valve.

    TriClip™ Implant Features

    • Cobalt-chromium and Nitinol construction
    • Polyester cover designed to promote tissue growth
    • Magnetic resonance conditional to 3 Tesla


    Static magnetic field up to 3 T; maximum spatial gradient in static field of 4000 gauss/cm or less; maximum whole-body averaged specific absorption rate (SAR) of 2 W/kg for 15 minutes of scanning.
     

  • Broad range of sizes for tailored treatment

    Four implant sizes are available for patient-specific therapy with the TriClip G4 TEER System.1

  • Optimized leaflet capture

    Optimized leaflet capture for consistent TR reduction with the TriClip G4 TEER system

    • Wide grasp opening allows full leaflet insertion1
    • Designed to distribute retention forces across the leaflets1
    • Controlled gripper actuation enables independent leaflet grasping and confirmation, when needed1
