Abstract

Nowadays, percutaneous pulmonary valve implantation (PPVI) is a suitable alternative to surgical procedure in patients with right ventricle outflow tract dysfunction. Two valves are currently available for PPVI: the Melody valve and the Edwards Sapien valve. The following complications may occur: coronary artery compression, deformation of the aortic root, stent or valve embolization, damage of distal pulmonary arteries, access site injuries. Here, we report on three cases of severe tricuspid regurgitation due to valvular and subvalvular apparatus damage during Edwards Sapien XT valve implantation.
