Pulmonary valve disease (congenital)
April 27, 2022
March 26, 2021
On Friday, March 26, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved the Harmony Transcatheter Pulmonary Valve (TPV) System to be used to treat pediatric and adult patients with a native or surgically-repaired right ventricular outflow tract who have severe pulmonary valve regurgitation.
March 8, 2021
The authors present a 4th sternotomy for late sequelae post-repair of tetralogy of Fallot with pulmonary atresia and criss-cross pulmonary arteries.

This video demonstrates a minimally invasive pulmonary valve replacement via left anterior minithoracotomy.
Early Infant Symptomatic Patients With Tetralogy of Fallot With Absent Pulmonary Valve: Pulmonary Artery Management and Airway Stabilization
December 10, 2020
This retrospective observational study of patients undergoing surgical repair for TOF-APV between 2006 and 2018 evaluated the safety of pulmonary artery replacement and aggressive direct airway management at initial definitive repair of cardiac TOF-APV.
One-Stage Midline Unifocalization With Complete Repair of Pulmonary Atresia, Ventricular Septal Defect, and Major Aortopulmonary Collaterals
June 29, 2020
This is a single stage, midline complete repair of pulmonary atresia with ventricular septal defect, major aortopulmonary collaterals, and absent intrapericardial native pulmonary arteries.
November 20, 2019
In this study from the Mayo Clinic, outcomes of bioprosthetic valves placed in the pulmonary position in adults with congenital heart disease were evaluated. Cumulative prosthetic valve dysfunction at 15 years was 48%, raising the question of the efficacy of using such valves in this position.
Abnormal Pulmonary Artery Bending Correlates With Increased Right Ventricular Afterload Following the Arterial Switch Operation
October 2, 2019
Abnormal pulmonary artery bending in the setting of the Lecompte maneuver may affect right ventricular afterload in the absence of stenosis.
September 23, 2019
The authors demonstrate the implantation of a prosthetic valve in the pulmonary position using a left anterior thoracotomy on an empty beating heart.
July 3, 2019
Bauser-Heaton and colleagues evaluated outcomes for patients with complex tetralogy of Fallot with pulmonary atresia and major aortopulmonary collateral arteries (MAPCAs), focusing on those patients who underwent unifocalization with placement of a shut rather than simultaneous intracardiac repair.
