Abstract

Using a commercially available 5F deflectable radiofrequency catheter, we have succeeded in percutaneous valvotomy of an imperforate pulmonary valve and consecutive balloon dilatation in a baby with pulmonary atresia and intact ventricular septum. After the procedure, right ventricular systolic pressure fell from 125 mmHg to 65 mmHg, and right ventriculography demonstrated anterograde blood flow into the pulmonary arteries. There were no major complications. Doppler echocardiography at 1 year after the procedure demonstrated a pressure gradient across the pulmonary valve of 20 mmHg with mild pulmonary and tricuspid regurgitations.
