Pulmonary valve disease is condition refers to any disorder of your heart's pulmonary valve, which is responsible for keeping blood from your heart flowing properly to your lungs. This is the valve separating the right ventricle (one of the chambers in the heart) and the pulmonary artery. The pulmonary artery carries oxygen-poor blood to the lungs.
Analysis around Belgium on pulmonary valve disease got the result as that no randomized controlled trials (RCT) on PHV have been published so far. Only observational data from series and data presented at cardiology meetings are available. Both percutaneous aortic valve (PAV) and percutaneous pulmonary valve (PPV) seem feasible in the hands of an experienced team. Safety, however, seems to be a problem in PAV, as shown by the high 30-day and 6-month mortality rates.
