Percutaneous pulmonary valve implantation (PPVI) is nowadays an accepted treatment option to repair post-surgical conduit dysfunction of the right ventricular outflow tract (RVOT). In addition, many patients need a pulmonary valve to reconstruct a hemodynamically incompetent native or conduit free outflow tract. Based on our experience with percutaneous stent-valve placement in a cohort of 125 patients, we report here transvenous reconstruction of a conduit-free, patch repaired outflow tract by utilizing balloon-expandable stent-valves in 23 patients with a median age of 22 years (5-60 years)...
