Intravascular or intracardiac stenoses occur in many forms of congenital heart disease (CHD). Therefore, the implantation of stents has become an accepted interventional procedure for stenotic lesions in pediatric cardiology. Furthermore, stents are know to be used to exclude vessel aneurysm or to ensure patency of existing or newly created intracardiac communications. With the further refinement of the first generation of devices, a variety of "modern" stents with different design characteristics have evolved...

Interventional cardiology plays a key role in the diagnosis and management of patients with functionally univentricular physiology after the various stages of surgical palliation. The interventions performed are widely variable in type, including angioplasty of stenotic vessels and implantation of stents in stenotic vessels; closure of defects such as collaterals, leaks in baffles, and fenestrations; creation of fenestration; and more. In the setting of venous hypertension associated with stenosis at the Fontan baffle, conduit, or pulmonary arteries, stent implantation is often preferred, as the aim is to eliminate completely the narrowing, given that relatively mild stenosis can have a significant detrimental hemodynamic effect in patients with functionally univentricular circulation...

BACKGROUND: The National Cardiovascular Data Registry (NCDR) launched the IMPACT (Improving Pediatric and Adult Congenital Treatment) Registry in 2010. By 2013, its patient enrollment exceeded that of other current and historical congenital catheterization registries. OBJECTIVES: This study sought to describe procedural results and safety of 6 common congenital interventions performed in patients enrolled during the IMPACT Registry's initial periods. METHODS: With specified exclusions, we compiled registry data from patients enrolled in the IMPACT Registry from January 2011 through March 2013 who underwent 1 of the following isolated procedures: device closure of atrial septal defect (ASD); device closure of patent ductus arteriosus (PDA); pulmonary valvuloplasty; aortic valvuloplasty; coarctation of the aorta angioplasty and stenting; and pulmonary artery stenting...

BACKGROUND: Melody Transcatheter Pulmonary Valve (TPV) replacement therapy represents an important advance in congenital cardiovascular interventions. The off-label extension of the Melody TPV to patients with nonconduit outflow tracts (right ventricular outflow tract [RVOT]) has the potential to vastly expand the population of patients eligible to benefit from nonsurgical restoration of RVOT function. However, knowledge on the performance of the Melody TPV in this setting is limited...
