E) – H) ICE probe in the LV allowing adequate delineation of the tissue bridge after tricuspid clipping. A’) – D’) Limited TEE mid-oesophageal views during an isolated tricuspid edge-to-edge repair. E’) – H’) ICE imaging from the RA showing excellent grasping views. * new orifice(s). Single arrow indicates first clip. Double arrow indicates second clip.
