Clinical Trial of the Week: Device study for patients who need tricuspid valve replacement

By Donna Loyle, communications manager, LIMR


Triscend II is a multicenter randomized clinical trial that is comparing EVOQUE, a system to replace a heart valve, along with optimal medical therapy (OMT) to OMT alone for treatment of patients with severe tricuspid regurgitation (TR).


Eligible participants are randomized into two study arms. Group 1 undergoes tricuspid valve replacement with the Edwards EVOQUE system and receives OMT from their physicians. Group 2 undergoes OMT alone.


Participants then receive follow-up care at discharge, 30 days, three months, six months and annually through five years.


Primary outcomes being studied include TR grade reduction, reduced major adverse events, and all-cause mortality.


Note: A single-arm registry for patients ineligible for randomization also is available. Contact the clinical trial coordinator for more information.
