Background.Percutaneous pulmonary valve implantation is frequently used as a less invasive method in patients with conduit dysfunction. The common valve type cannot be used in conduits with a diameter larger than 22mm. There has been limited experience concerning the used of the SAPIEN Transcatheter Heart Valve, produced for use in conduits with a large diameter. This study presents hemodynamic and early follow-up results from a single center in Turkey concerning the use of the SAPIEN Transcatheter Heart Valve in different types of conduits and different lesions.
