We present a case of successful bicaval Melody valve implantation to treat severe mitral regurgitation in a 44-year-old man with d-transposition of the great arteries, repaired via a Mustard operation. The patient sustained injury to the anterior mitral valve leaflet during laser extraction of a ventricular pacing lead resulting in acute, severe, symptomatic mitral regurgitation. The presence of systemic venous baffles of similar caliber to right ventricular outflow tract conduits allowed for implantation of Melody valves within each baffle...

INTRODUCTION AND OBJECTIVES: A decade has passed since the first Spanish percutaneous pulmonary Melody valve implant (PPVI) in March 2007. Our objective was to analyze its results in terms of valvular function and possible mid-term follow-up complications. METHODS: Spanish retrospective descriptive multicenter analysis of Melody PPVI in patients < 18 years from the first implant in March 2007 until January 1, 2016. RESULTS: Nine centers were recruited with a total of 81 PPVI in 77 pediatric patients, whose median age and weight were 13...

Introduction Although the right jugular vein approach for percutaneous pulmonary valve implantation is well described, there are no reports that describe a percutaneous pulmonary valve implantation through a left superior caval vein to coronary sinus pathway. Case A 14-year-old female with tetralogy of Fallot, mesocardia, left superior caval vein draining into the coronary sinus, and hemiazygos continuation of the inferior caval vein underwent ventricular septal defect closure, with homograft insertion from the right ventricle to the pulmonary artery, patch augmentation of the left pulmonary artery, and creation of an atrial communication...

In this article we report the first case of Q fever endocarditis in a 13 years old child with a percutaneous pulmonary Melody(®) valve. The patient had a new onset of Melody valve dysfunction associated with the combination of hepatosplenomegaly and pancytopenia but was afebrile. Although blood cultures were negative, we have further investigated in the direction of infective endocarditis by performing PCR detection and the serology of C. burnetii which were positive. A combination antibiotic therapy with doxycycline and hydroxychloroquine was started with good clinical evolution...

OBJECTIVES: To describe a new modification, the one-step procedure, that allows interventionists to pre-stent and implant a Melody valve simultaneously. BACKGROUND: Percutaneous pulmonary valve implantation (PPVI) is the standard of care for managing patients with dysfunctional right ventricular outflow tract, and the approach is standardized. METHODS: Patients undergoing PPVI using the one-step procedure were identified in our database. Procedural data and radiation exposure were compared to those in a matched group of patients who underwent PPVI using the conventional two-step procedure...

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)...

We present our experience for patients who have undergone an anatomic repair (AR) for congenitally corrected transposition of the great arteries (CCTGA) at the Children's Hospital of Wisconsin. A retrospective chart review of patients who underwent AR for CCTGA from 2001 to 2015 was performed. The cohort consisted of 15 patients (74% male). Median age of anatomic repair was 15 months (range 4.5-45.6 months). Four patients had a bidirectional Glenn (BDG) prior to AR. At the time of AR,-9 (60%) underwent Senning/Rastelli procedure, 4 (26...

Transcatheter pulmonary valve placement is emerging as a standard therapy for dysfunctional right ventricular outflow tract conduits. The Melody transcatheter pulmonary valve is indicated for use in the management of pediatric and adult patients with right ventricular outflow tract conduits measuring at least 16 mm in diameter. This is the first reported case of placement in a patient with a left ventricular assist device. We outline the preprocedural evaluation process, the procedural methods, and the outcomes of a successful implantation in a complex patient...

Through a series of complex surgical and interventional procedures including downsizing of an unrestricted atrial septal defect, aortic arch reconstruction, pulmonary artery banding, reversed Potts shunt, and Melody valve in a mitral position, biventricular conversion was successfully achieved in a patient with a distinct borderline left ventricle. By use of these interventional steps, flow-mediated and load-mediated growth of a small left ventricle was observed, highlighting the plasticity of hearts in growing children...

The Potts operation is a surgical option for the treatment of children with suprasystemic pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH). Its positive hemodynamic effect may be obliterated by pulmonary valvar insufficiency. We describe a case in which the Potts shunt was followed by perventricular Melody valve implantation in the pulmonary position in a 12-kg child with a previously repaired truncus arteriosus communis (TAC) in whom PAH developed. The combined approach using both procedures significantly improved functional capacity and led to spectacular reverse remodeling of the right ventricle seen at 2-year follow-up...

Transcatheter pulmonary valve implantation is established as a valuable option to reconstruct failing right ventricular outflow tract function. Percutaneous tricuspid valve-in-valve or valve-in-ring reconstruction is even applied with increasing acceptance. A 46-year-old woman with a diagnosis of carcinoid-dependent right heart failure underwent surgical bioprosthetic tricuspid and pulmonary valve replacement. Almost 1 year later, she presented again with markedly dilatated and reduced right heart function caused by degeneration of both biologic valves...

Transcatheter pulmonary valve implantation (TPVI) within a failed bioprosthetic valve is safe and effective Coronary artery compression is a potential risk, requiring careful preimplantation balloon dilation testing Prestenting is required for TPVI in stentless conduits Improvements in right ventricular volume, pressure, pulmonary stenosis, and regurgitation can be maintained in the intermediate term Long-term risk for Melody valve endocarditis and valve dysfunction necessitates careful monitoring.
