Abstract

We report the case of a 27-year-old Jehovah's Witness patient with severe pulmonary insufficiency and right ventricular dilatation 16 years after primary repair, who sought transcatheter therapy as a means to avoid surgery and the risk of blood product administration. A hybrid procedure involving pulmonary artery banding to a diameter amenable to fixation of a Melody valve (Medtronic Inc.) via trans-ventricular puncture was performed. doi: 10.1111/jocs.12695 (J Card Surg 2016;31:174-176)
