■ The tricuspid valve can no longer close, blood flows from the right ventricle back into the right atrium (1).
■ Two holes are made in the valve ring (2) via a guiding catheter at suitable locations with a thin wire from below.
■ Two strands are anchored (3).
■ By means of a catheter, the anchoring points are pulled together with two threads (4), the threads are joined together and cut off the ends.
■ This maneuver is folding the posterior leaflet(5) transforming the tricuspid into a bicuspid valve (6).
