May 4, 2018 — Transcatheter valve technology has been advancing very quickly and the links to aggregated content from the past year below offer a concise update. Transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) use has greatly expanded over the past several years. The Boston Scientific Lotus TAVR valve is now positioned to most likely become the third TAVR device available on the U.S. market in the next 18 months. Several transcatheter mitral valve replacement (TMVR) and mitral valve repair technologies are now in clinical trials in the U.S. and overseas. Transcatheter tricuspid valve devices are also now in trials, and a transcatheter tricuspid annual repair device  was just cleared for use in Europe this week.

(B) Optical coherence tomography (OCT) cross-sectional (top) and longitudinal (bottom) images acquired before IVL and coregistered to the OCT lens (arrow in A) demonstrate severe near-circumferential calcification (double-headed arrow) in the area of the stenosis. (C) Angiography demonstrates improvement in the area of stenosis after IVL (inset; note the cavitation bubbles generated by IVL [black arrows]). (D) OCT cross-sectional (top) and longitudinal (bottom) images acquired post-IVL and coregistered to the OCT lens (white arrow in C) demonstrate multiple calcium fractures and large acute luminal gain. (E) Angiography demonstrates complete stent expansion with the semicompliant stent balloon (inset) without the need for high-pressure noncompliant balloon inflation. (F) OCT cross-sectional (top) and longitudinal (bottom) images acquired post-stenting and coregistered to the OCT lens (arrow in E) demonstrate further fracture displacement (arrow), with additional increase in the acute area gain (5.17 mm2), resulting in full stent expansion and minimal malapposition.
