Abstract

Children with branch pulmonary artery stenosis represent a challenging cohort for stenting Premounted stent implantation provides immediate obstruction relief and hemodynamic improvement in infants Planned stent intervention is required to account for somatic growth and next stage palliation in children Continued slenderization of adult coronary and peripheral interventions, stent technology, and delivery systems may allow for more durable solutions in light of patient size.
