Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Measurement of radial, linear and axial compression, bending and torsion of device [ Time Frame: 4 Days Post-Implant ]
    The following variables will be measured: radial compression, linear compression, axial compression, device bending and device torsion using the discharge CT. The degree of deformation of the device will be reported.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Number of Patients with Procedural Success [ Time Frame: 24 hours post-implant ]
    The number of patients who are successfully implanted with the device will be reported. This is measured by meeting all of the following criteria: Confirmation that the device is fixated within the desired location, RV-PA peak-to-peak gradient is less than 25 mmHg, Pulmonary regurgitation is moderate or less, and the subject is free of explantation at 24 hours post-implant.

  • Number of Patients with Serious Procedural Adverse Events [ Time Frame: Through 5 year follow-up ]
    The number of patients that experience a serious procedural adverse event, as defined per the study protocol, will be reported.

  • Number of Patients with Device-related Adverse Events [ Time Frame: Through 5 years ]
    The number of patients that experience a device-related adverse event, as defined per the study protocol, will be reported.

  • Number of Patients with Stent Fracture [ Time Frame: Through 5 years ]
    The number of patients that experience a stent fracture of their device will be reported.

  • Number of Patients with Catheter Re-intervention on the TPV [ Time Frame: Through 5 years ]
    The number of patients that experience a catheter re-intervention will be reported.

  • Assessment of Surgical Intervention on the TPV [ Time Frame: Through 5 years ]
    The number of patients that undergo a surgical intervention will be reported.

  • Number of Patient Deaths (all-cause, procedural, and device-related) [ Time Frame: Through 5 years ]
    Any patient deaths that occur during the study will be reported.

  • Pulmonary Regurgitant Fraction (%) as measured by cardiac MRI [ Time Frame: Through 5 years ]
    The pulmonary regurgitant fraction for all patients, as measured by cardiac MRI, will be reported.

  • Pulmonary Regurgitation Severity as Measured by Echocardiography [ Time Frame: Through 5 years ]
    The pulmonary regurgitation severity for all patients, as measured by echocardiography, will be reported.

  • Right Ventricular Volume (ml) as Measured by Cardiac MRI [ Time Frame: Through 5 years ]
    The right ventricular volumes for all patients, as measured by cardiac MRI, will be reported.

  • Mean RVOT Gradient (mmHg) as Measured by Color Wave Doppler [ Time Frame: Through 5 years ]
    The mean RVOT gradient for all patients, as measured by Color Wave Doppler, will be reported.

Transcatheter placement of a pulmonary valve
Other Name: Native TPV

Detailed Description:
Medtronic, Inc. is in the process of developing a novel transcatheter device option for patients with congenital heart disease, without right ventricle-to-pulmonary artery conduits, called the Native Outflow Tract Transcatheter Pulmonary Valve. Given limitations in the animal model to confirm device boundary conditions, this feasibility study is proposed to characterize that information as well as evaluate safety, procedural feasibility and performance data to be used for future development of the device.

Ages Eligible for Study:   Child, Adult, Senior
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Subject has pulmonary regurgitation as per one or more of the following criteria: Severe pulmonary regurgitation as measured by Doppler echocardiography, or Pulmonary regurgitant fraction ≥ 30% as measured by cardiac magnetic resonance imaging
  • Clinical indication for surgical placement of a RVOT conduit or bioprosthetic pulmonary valve per one or more of the following criteria: Subject is symptomatic secondary to pulmonary insufficiency (e.g. exercise intolerance, fluid overload) as classified by the Investigator, or Right ventricular end diastolic volume (RVEDV) ≥ 150 ml/m2
  • Subject is willing to consent to participate in the study and will commit to completion of all follow-up requirements

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Anatomy unable to accommodate a 25 Fr delivery system
  • Obstruction of the central veins
  • Clinical or biological signs of infection including active endocarditis
  • Indicated for intervention of stenosis of the branch pulmonary arteries at time of implant
  • Positive pregnancy test at baseline (prior to CT angiography and again prior to implant procedure) in female subjects of child bearing potential
  • Patients with right ventricular outflow tract obstruction (RVOTO) lesions surgically treated with a right ventricle-to-pulmonary artery conduit implant

  • Planned implantation of the Native Outflow Tract TPV in the left heart
  • RVOT anatomy or morphology that is unfavorable for anchoring
  • Known allergy to aspirin, heparin, or nickel
  • Echocardiographic evidence of intracardiac mass, thrombus, or vegetation
  • Pre-existing prosthetic heart valve or prosthetic ring in any position
