We report a case of a 29-year-old man who developed exercised-induced myocardial infarction 3 months post Melody valve implantation. We introduce the concept of ruling out dynamic coronary artery compression by simulating transcatheter pulmonary valve implant while increasing cardiac output and thus aortic dimensions in the catheterization laboratory. © 2014 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
