The purpose of this study is to evaluate the hypothesis that valve dysfunction of the Edwards Lifesciences SAPIEN 3 Transcatheter Heart Valve (THV) System is within the performance goal of 25% in subjects with a dysfunctional right ventricular outflow tract (RVOT) conduit with a clinical indication for intervention.

Official Title

COngenital Multicenter Trial of Pulmonic vAlve Dysfunction Studying the SAPIEN 3 interventIONal THV


The purpose of this study is to demonstrate the safety and effectiveness of the Edwards Lifesciences SAPIEN 3 THV System in subjects with a dysfunctional RVOT conduit with a clinical indication for intervention.

You can join if…

  • Weight ≥ 20 kg (44 lbs.)
  • RVOT conduit with a landing zone diameter ≥ 18 mm and ≤ 29 mm immediately prior to study device insertion
  • Subject presents with at least moderate PR and/or mean RVOT gradient ≥ 35 mmHg.
  • The subject/subject's legally authorized representative has been informed of the nature of the study, agrees to its provisions and has provided written informed consent.

You CAN'T join if...

  • RVOT with dysfunctional, previously implanted pulmonary valve (either surgical or transcatheter valve)
  • Active infection requiring current antibiotic therapy (if temporary illness, subject may be a candidate 2 weeks after discontinuation of antibiotics)
  • History of or active endocarditis (active treatment with antibiotics) within the past 180 days
  • Leukopenia (WBC < 2000 cells/µL), anemia (Hgb < 7 g/dL), thrombocytopenia (Platelets <50,000 cells/µL) or any known blood clotting disorder
  • Inappropriate anatomy for femoral introduction and delivery of the SAPIEN 3 THV
