Article Correctness Is Author's Responsibility: Houston Methodist first in Houston to perform TriClip procedure

(Houston Methodist) Cardiologists at Houston Methodist recently performed the first catheter-based repair in Houston of a leaky tricuspid valve using the novel TriClip system. Using cardiac ultrasound guidance, doctors were able to implant two TriClip devices in a 75-year-old patient as part of the pivotal TRILUMINATE trial, which seeks to evaluate the safety and efficacy of the device. The tricuspid valve has traditionally required conventional open-heart surgery to repair or replace it.
