BACKGROUND The Melody transcatheter pulmonary valve (TPV) was approved for implantation in obstructed right ventricular outflow tract conduits in 2010 after a multicenter trial demonstrating improvements in conduit obstruction, regurgitation, and right ventricular pressure. A recognized risk and contraindication to TPV implantation is the demonstration of coronary artery (CA) compression during balloon angioplasty or stent placement in the overlying conduit. This study is the first to… CONTINUE READING
