Edwards PASCAL Transcatheter Valve Repair System Pivotal Clinical Trial

To establish the safety and effectiveness of the Edwards PASCAL Transcatheter Repair System in patients with symptomatic severe tricuspid regurgitation who have been determined to be at an intermediate or greater estimated risk of mortality with tricuspid valve surgery by the cardiac surgeon with concurrence by the local Heart Team

Stanford is currently not accepting patients for this trial.

Inclusion Criteria:

   - Eighteen (18) years of age or older

   - Despite medical therapy, per the local Heart Team, patient has signs of TR, symptoms
   from TR, or prior heart failure hospitalization from TR.

   - Severe or greater tricuspid regurgitation

   - New York Heart Association (NYHA) Class II-IVa or heart failure hospitalization in the
   prior 12 months

   - Patient is at an intermediate or greater estimated risk of mortality with tricuspid
   valve surgery as determined by the cardiac surgeon with concurrence by the local Heart

   - Patient is able and willing to give informed consent, follow protocol procedures, and
   comply with follow-up visit requirements

Exclusion Criteria:

   - Tricuspid valve anatomy not evaluable by TTE and TEE

   - Tricuspid valve anatomy precludes proper device deployment and function

   - Patient with refractory heart failure requiring, or having required, advanced
   intervention (i.e. left ventricular assist device, transplantation) (ACC/AHA Stage D
   heart failure)

   - Primary non-degenerative tricuspid disease

   - Previous tricuspid valve repair or replacement that would interfere with placement of

   - Clinically significant, untreated coronary artery disease

   - Recent Stroke

   - Other severe valve disorders requiring intervention

   - Need for emergent or urgent surgery for any reason or any planned cardiac surgery
   within the next 12 months

   - Severe aortic, mitral and/or pulmonic valve stenosis and/or regurgitation

   - Active endocarditis

   - Continuous home oxygen for primary severe COPD

   - Pregnant or planning pregnancy within the next 12 months. Note: Female patients of
   childbearing potential need to have a negative pregnancy test performed within 14 days
   prior to intervention and be adherent to an accepted method of contraception

   - Concurrent medical condition with a life expectancy of less than 12 months in the
   judgment of the Investigator

   - Patient is currently participating in another investigational biologic, drug or device
   clinical study where the primary study endpoint was not reached at time of enrollment

   - Other medical, social, or psychological conditions that preclude appropriate consent
   and follow-up, including patients under guardianship
