Intervention Details:
    Device: Transcatheter Pulmonic Valve Replacement (TPVR) (Edwards SAPIEN™ THV)
    The Edwards SAPIEN™ THV is a biological heart valve manufactured with treated bovine pericardial tissue that is mounted into a balloon expandable stainless steel open cell stent. The Edwards SAPIEN™ THV is available in two sizes (23 and 26mm) and is designed for transcatheter implantation in patients with regurgitant pulmonary valved conduit with or without stenosis. This device is commercially available and is used according the current IFU.
Detailed Description:

Consecutive patient data should be collected at discharge, 6 months, 12 months and 2-5 years post-implant.


Genders Eligible for Study:   Both
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Sampling Method:   Non-Probability Sample
Study Population

All symptomatic patients with a regurgitant or stenotic pulmonary valved conduit treated by implantation of the Edwards SAPIEN™ THV.


Inclusion Criteria:

- Symptomatic with a regurgitant or stenotic pulmonary valved conduit.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Angiographic evidence of coronary artery compression.
  • RV-PA pulmonary conduit size that is either too large or too small to accommodate the SAPIEN THV.
  • Thrombus or intracardiac mass in the right atrium, right ventricle, and/or pulmonic valve.
  • Severe coagulation problems and/or unable to tolerate anticoagulation/antiplatelet therapy.
  • Active bacterial endocarditis or other active infections.
  • Illeofemoral venous stenosis that may prevent the placement of the introducer sheath and/or central venous vascular tortuosities that may prevent advancement of the delivery system to the heart or into the pulmonary artery.
  • Presence of any prosthetic valve in the tricuspid position.
  • Unstable coronary artery disease-related angina.
  • Placement of the SAPIEN THV in pregnant females.
