Authors: Alkashkari W, Albugami S, Abbadi M, Niyazi A, Alsubei A, Hijazi ZM Abstract INTRODUCTION: Right ventricular outflow tract (RVOT) dysfunction is common among individuals with congenital heart disease (CHD). Surgical intervention often carries prohibitive risks due to the need for sequential pulmonary valve (PV) replacements throughout their life in the majority of cases. Transcatheter pulmonary valve replacement (tPVR) is one of the most exciting recent developments in the treatment of CHD and has evolved to become an attractive alternative to surgery in patients with RVOT dysfunction. Areas covered: In thi...
