Cardiac electronic implantable devices after tricuspid valve surgery

Abstract : The demand for tricuspid valve (TV) surgery has increased continuously in the last years. Recent registry data have confirmed that TV repair or replacement carry an increased risk of conduction disorders requiring permanent pacemaker implantation, specifically for patients having multivalve surgery. The implantation of an endocardial right ventricular lead in those patients may impair TV function, and some other approaches may be discussed to avoid traversing the valve. This contemporary review describes the different options currently available for patients requiring pacemaker or defibrillation lead implantation after TV surgery.
