BACKGROUND Significant infundibular stenosis and significant tricuspid regurgitation (TR) occasionally result from severe pulmonary valve stenosis in adults, and these 2 conditions have an adverse impact on morbidity and mortality in patients who undergo corrective surgery. The goal of this study was (1) to evaluate the long-term (up to 17 years) outcome of pulmonary balloon valvuloplasty (PBV) in adults and (2) to determine the effect of successful PBV on severe infundibular stenosis and… CONTINUE READING
