Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to confirm the short-term hemodynamic effectiveness results achieved by real-world providers are equivalent to the historical control established in the IDE study.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Melody TPV Implant
Melody® Transcatheter Pulmonary Valve implanted into a dysfunctional RVOT Conduit.
Device: Melody® Transcatheter Pulmonary Valve
Transcatheter Pulmonary Valve replacement Transcatheter valve implantation into a RVOT conduit in patients with complex congenital heart defects where the conduit has become dysfunctional and where the patient needs invasive intervention.
Other Name: Melody Transcatheter Pulmonary Valve

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Acceptable TPV Hemodynamic Function at Six Months After Successful TPV Implantation [ Time Frame: 6 months ]

    Acceptable TPV hemodynamic function at six months after successful TPV implantation is determined as a composite of the following:

    • Mean RVOT gradient is less than or equal to 30 mmHg as measured by CW Doppler, and
    • Severity of pulmonary regurgitation is less than moderate by Doppler echocardiography, and
    • Free from RVOT conduit reoperation or catheter re-intervention at six months after TPV implantation.

    The endpoint is defined as the percentage of subjects with acceptable TPV hemodynamic function at six months after Melody valve implantation.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Procedural Success [ Time Frame: 6 Months ]

    Procedural success is defined as a composite of the following:

    • The TPV is fixated within the desired location, and
    • The RV-PA peak-to-peak gradient measured in the catheterization lab after TPV implantation is less than 35 mmHg, and
    • There is no more than trivial pulmonary regurgitation by angiography
    • The subject is free from explantation of the TPV at 24 hours post-implant

  2. Serious Procedural Adverse Events [ Time Frame: 6 Months ]
    A procedure-related event is defined as an event that is associated with the implant procedure by the chronology or physiology and was caused by the implant procedure (e.g. rupture of the conduit or damage to an intra-cardiac or intravascular structure by the delivery system).

  3. Serious Device-related Adverse Events [ Time Frame: 6 months ]
    A device-related event is defined as an event that is associated with the TPV by the chronology or physiology and was caused by the the TPV (e.g. embolization of the TPV and any adverse events which follow).

  4. Changes in NYHA Functional Classification [ Time Frame: 6 Months ]
    Change in NYHA functional class from pre-implant to 6 month post-implant
