An inverted Edwards SAPIEN 23 mm valve was implanted in a 14-year-old patient with Ebstein's anomaly who received a Medtronic Mosaic 25 mm valve 8 years earlier and presented with significant progressive symptoms related to severe valvular regurgitation and moderate stenosis. The procedure was performed via the femoral vein using the RetroFlex 3 system and predilatation of the tricuspid valve, under transesophageal echocardiographic guidance. The patient had an immediate drop in right atrial and trans-tricuspid pressures with mild regurgitation, and had stable results on short-term follow-up.
