Relief of Right Ventricular to Pulmonary Artery Conduit Stenosis Using a Self-Expanding Stent

Catheter Cardiovasc Interv. 1999 May;47(1):52-4. doi: 10.1002/(SICI)1522-726X(199905)47:1<52::AID-CCD11>3.0.CO;2-N.

Abstract

Intravascular stents have recently been used to treat vascular stenoses in congenital heart disease. Size limitations, however, may preclude their use in certain situations. We describe the successful relief of right ventricular to pulmonary artery conduit stenosis in an adult patient late after repair of truncus arteriosus using a larger, self-expanding wall stent.
