World Class Care for Tricuspid Valve Treatment

The expert team at Piedmont’s Marcus Heart Valve Center provides comprehensive tricuspid valve diagnosis and treatment - ranging from advanced imaging to surgical repair or replacement to new minimally invasive treatment options. 

Tricuspid regurgitation is a condition where the heart’s tricuspid valve leaflets do not fully close, causing blood to leak backwards.  It is estimated to affect 2.5 million people in the U.S. Until recently, the only options to treat tricuspid regurgitation were with medications or open-heart surgery. Piedmont is offering hope to patients who suffer from tricuspid regurgitation by offering a bevy of therapeutic options and individualized care plans. 

Pioneering Advances in Tricuspid Valve Care

The Marcus Heart Valve Center is leading the way for new non-surgical treatment Dr. Mani Vannan, Cardiologist at Marcus Heart Valve Centeroptions for tricuspid regurgitation. Less invasive transcatheter options mean it is now possible to treat tricuspid regurgitation without surgery and opens the door for many more patients. We are currently enrolling in a clinical trial of the 4Tech TriCinch Coil System for transcatheter tricuspid valve repair.  Piedmont was the first center in the U.S. to use this device. 

The team at the Marcus Heart Valve Center is one of the most experienced in the world performing minimally invasive transcatheter repair options for tricuspid regurgitation. We were national leading enrollers in the SCOUT Study, in which the initial phase showed marked improvements in quality of life for patients undergoing treatment with the Mitralign Percutaneous Tricuspid Valve Annuloplasty System.

Piedmont is breaking barriers in care including being the first in Georgia to implant a transcatheter tricuspid valve (view our patient story) and the first in the world to treat a patient with mechanically induced tricuspid regurgitation due to a pacemaker lead (view our patient story).
