Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center is actively participating in a new medical study (TRILUMINATE Pivotal Trial), and enrolling patients who have severe symptomatic tricuspid regurgitation (leakage through the tricuspid valve), and are deemed appropriate for transcatheter intervention. This study is being conducted by Abbott, and is designed to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of the TriClip device for the treatment of severe tricuspid regurgitation. Potential participants must go through a screening process prior to being enrolled in the study.
