Failing mitral homograft in the tricuspid position treated with a percutaneous approach

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

: Patients with degenerated mitral homograft in tricuspid position, albeit rare, can nowadays come to our attention. Here we report on a case that shows that the transcatheter approach can be successfully adopted, leading to an evident improvement in the clinical condition, especially in symptomatic patients who cannot undergo surgical intervention.
