Abstract

This report describes the case of a 13-year-old boy with endocarditis of a Contegra® pulmonary valved conduit used for the correction of tetralogy of Fallot. He had severe pulmonary stenosis after endocarditis resolution. We performed percutaneous pulmonary valve implantation with resolution of the conduit dysfunction. The procedure was well tolerated by our patient and offered many advantages.
