Brief Summary:

The study is a prospective, non-randomised, open label clinical study to assess the safety of the Bioabsorbable Pulmonary Valved (PV) conduit (PV-001) in subjects > 2 years and < 22 years of age, undergoing Right Ventricular Outflow Tract (RVOT) reconstruction. It is a first in man feasibility study which will include 10-12 patients in up to 6 sites in Europe.

The primary objective of the study is to assess the survival rate of subjects at 6 months following implantation of the Bioabsorbable Pulmonary Valved Conduit (PV-001).

Secondary objectives:

  1. The survival rate of subjects at 12 months following implantation of the Bioabsorbable Pulmonary Valved Conduit (PV-001)
  2. The percentage of conduit failure at 6 months and 12 months, where conduit failure includes the need for reintervention or reoperation.
  3. The pressure gradient across the pulmonary valve will have an acceptable level at 12 months follow up.
  4. The pulmonary regurgitation measured will not exceed a moderate grading at 12 months follow up.
  5. To evaluate the usability of the Bioabsorbable Pulmonary Valved Conduit (PV-001) during the surgical procedure, using exploratory parameters

Long term safety will be assessed up to 60 months post implantation.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Pulmonary Valved Conduit (PV-001)
Bioabsorbable Pulmonary Valved Conduit (PV-001) implantation through open surgery.
Device: Bioabsorbable Pulmonary Valved Conduit (PV-001)

The Bioabsorbable Pulmonary Valved (PV) Conduit (PV-001) is a polymer-based medical device, with a total length of 8 cm with inner diameters of 16 or 18 mm. The valve itself is formed by three leaflets, incorporated within the conduit wall.

The PV conduit is used for correction or reconstruction of the Right Ventricular Outflow Tract (RVOT) in patients with any of the following congenital heart malformations:

  • Tetralogy of Fallot
  • Truncus Arteriosus
  • Pulmonary Atresia
  • Transposition of Great Arteries with Ventricular Septal Defect (VSD)
  • Pulmonary Stenosis in combination with other defects in congenital heart defect (CHD) syndromes

The PV conduit can also be used for replacement of previously implanted, but dysfunctional, pulmonary homografts or valved conduits.





Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. The survival rate of participants at 6 months following implantation of the Bioabsorbable Pulmonary Valved Conduit (PV-001),, measured by the fact that the patient is still alive at the time of the 6 month FU visit [ Time Frame: 6 months ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. The survival rate of participants at 12 months following implantation of the Bioabsorbable Pulmonary Valved Conduit (PV-001), measured by the fact that the patient is still alive at the time of the 12 month FU visit. [ Time Frame: 12 months ]
  2. The rate of reoperation or reintervention due to PV conduit failure at 6 months and 12 months follow up , measured by the fact that the patient did not have a reoperation or reintervention during the follow up time. [ Time Frame: 6 and 12 months ]
  3. The rate of patients with a mean pressure gradient across the area of PV conduit implantation (RV to PA) of less than 40 mm Hg at 12 months follow up, measured with echocardiography at 12 months follow up. [ Time Frame: 12 months ]
  4. The rate of patients with pulmonary regurgitation of equal or less than moderate at 12 months follow up, measured with echocardiography at 12 months follow up. [ Time Frame: 12 months ]

    The degree of pulmonary regurgitation (the percentage of blood that regurgitates back through the pulmonary valve due to valve insufficiency) is defined as:

    • mild if regurgitant fraction is <20%
    • moderate if regurgitant fraction is 20%-40%;
    • severe if regurgitant fraction is >40%.

  5. Overall satisfaction of the implantability of the Bioabsorbable Pulmonary Valved Conduit (PV-001), measured with a questionnaire given to the implanting surgeon at the time of implantation of the PV conduit (PV-001). [ Time Frame: Intraoperative ]
