Percutaneous pulmonary valve implantation is been increasingly performed for restoring pulmonary competence in appropriately selected patients. However, The currently available valves are not capable of being safely implanted in the majority of patient with outflow tract dysfunction as they cannot accommodate the larger outflow tract diameters seen in most patients. The Venus P-valve is a new percutaneous pulmonary valve designed specifically for implantation in large (up to 32 mm diameters) native right ventricular outflow tracts. In this report we describe the combined use of a Venus P-valve and Melody transcatheter pulmonary valves in a patient with a dysfunctional native and artificial right ventricular outflow tracts.
