Abstract

The Edwards Sapien S3 demonstrated clinical and technical feasibility in this cohort undergoing percutaneous pulmonary valve implantation. Traversing the tricuspid apparatus with an unsheathed delivery system continues to pose a risk for tricuspid valve injury. Future design innovations need to accommodate for large outflow tracts without adjacent aortic or coronary compression and allow for safe device delivery with minimal trauma to the tricuspid apparatus.
