Abstract

Transcatheter pulmonary valve implantation improves conduit haemodynamics without necessity of complex reoperation. Clinical experience with application of the Edwards-SAPIEN Transcatheter Heart Valve (THV) in pulmonary position is still limited. We present data of 2 patients (21 year-old woman and 26 year-old man) with a history of dysfunction of homograft in position of right ventricular outflow tract (RVOT), in whom the Edwards-SAPIEN THV was successfuly implanted.
