Melody Transcatheter Pulmonary Valve Study: Post Approval Study of the Original IDE Cohort
Implantation of the Medtronic Melody Transcatheter Pulmonary Valve in Patients With Dysfunctional RVOT Conduits: A Feasibility Study
The primary objective is to confirm the long-term functionality of implantation of the Medtronic Melody TPV at 5 years is no worse than the historical control established through literature review. The secondary objectives are to assess safety, procedural success, and clinical utility of transcatheter implantation of the Melody TPV.
