Use this workflow to pre-plan Transcatheter Tricuspid Valve repair or replacement procedures
Determine the anatomy and dimensions of the patient’s tricuspid valve and surrounding tissue:
- Distances towards the RCA
can be easily assessed
can be segmented automatically and highlighted in the angio view. Possible interference of the device with trabeculae can assessed by implantation of a virtual device
Segment the superior vena cava
. Assess SVC dimensions such as diameter, area and lengths throughout the whole SVC
Assess dimensions and lengths throughout the IVC
e.g. dimensions at the transition level with the right atrium as well as the IVC at the level of the first hepatic vein. Visual feedback of the measurement in the angio view allows for optimal planning of the procedure.
