Abstract

Transcatheter valve replacement has recently been introduced into clinical practice. We present our first experience with non-surgical, transcatheter pulmonary valve implantation in four patients (age 27-31 years, three females) with repaired congenital heart disease who required reintervention to the right ventricular outflow tract due to dysfunction of valve homograft. The Medtronic Melody Transcatheter Pulmonary Valve was successfully implanted in all four patients without complications, releasing the outflow obstruction, and normal function of the biological valve.
