Abstract

Transcatheter implantation of pulmonary valve became a big step forward in the field of interventional cardiology. It is especially important in the patients with defects of the right ventricular outlet tract, because they were usually candidates for multiple surgical operations. We present first transcatheter replacement of pulmonary valve in 23-years-old man. The ‘Melody’ valve was implanted successfully. There were no complications and the patient was discharged in good condition.
