Abstract: The authors report and discuss the anaesthetic management of a transvenous transcatheter tricuspid valve replacement. The conduct of Anaesthesia, the challenges encountered and the specific risks associated with the procedure will be discussed. Percutaneous tricuspid valve replacement may be safely performed under general Anaesthesia, provided that the procedure is understood and all possible eventualities considered. As the quality of percutaneous prostheses improves, and if long-term follow-up confirms this as a safe option, anaesthesiologists will be expected to provide perioperative care for a growing number of these cases.
