What We​ Do​

A leaky valve can lead to arrhythmias, heart failure and even sudden death. A percutaneous pulmonary valve replacement is a less invasive, non-surgical approach developed to control the harmful effects of early repair and multiple operations.

It involves using a bovine valve sutured inside a balloon expandable stent to replace the pulmonary valve.
