Introduction: Surgery for severe tricuspid regurgitation (TR) is a high-risk procedure. Therefore transcatheter valve implantation into the vena cava can be performed as an attempt to reduce the complications and symptoms associated with this.
Aim(s): To determine the success of transcatheter valve implantation to control carcinoid symptoms in a patient.
Materials and methods: A 69-year-old female with a background of metastatic neuroendocrine tumour experienced symptomatic severe CHD despite being on a somatostatin analogue. The plan was for invasive treatment to control the effects of TR on the liver to enable an ablation procedure to the liver metastases to be performed later.
