Cardiac Remodeling and Prognosis in Secondar Tricuspid Regurgitation


The aim of this study is to improve the definition of the two main types of secondary tricuspid regurgitation.

Study Type

  • Study Type: Observational
  • Study Design
    • Time Perspective: Prospective
  • Study Primary Completion Date: January 19, 2021


  • Other: Moderate to severe tricuspid regurgitation (≥ 2/4) diagnosed with echocardiography in patients stabilized.
    • Moderate to severe tricuspid regurgitation (≥ 2/4) diagnosed with echocardiography in patients stabilized.

Clinical Trial Outcome Measures

Primary Measures

  • Composite criteria : cardiovascular death or unscheduled hospitalizations due to cardiovascular event.
    • Time Frame: through study completion, an average of 1 year

Participating in This Clinical Trial

Inclusion Criteria

  • Any patients ≥ 18 years old, with moderate to severe tricuspid regurgitation (≥ 2/4), agreeing to participate ; – The patients included can be ambulatory patients or stabilized hospitalised patients (meaning patient clinicaly stable, not decompensated, and whose normovolemia has been checked). – Non opposition of the patient Exclusion Criteria:

  • Patient whose accoustic window is judged by the operator as incompatible with a precise evaluation of the tricuspid regurgitation or anatomy of the right cavity ; – TR < grade 2 ; – TR secondary to primary pulmonary hypertension or congenital cardiopathy ; – Primary tricuspid regurgitation (due to rheumatic heart disease, medication – included benfluorex, due to endocarditis, valvular prolapse, carcinoid syndrom or a cardiac stimulation lead …) ; – Significant left heart valvulopathy (Mitral regurgitation > grade 2, Aortic insufficiency > grade 2, Mitral stenosis < 2 cm², Aortic stenosis < 1.5 cm²). A valvulopathy sucessfully operated isn't considered as an exclusion criteria; – Cardiopathy with significative systolic dysfunction (FE< 40%) ; – Patients whose life expectantcy is less than 1 year due to a pathology independent of the TR (neoplasic process for example) ; – Patient under judicial protection.
