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 or previously implanted valve in the pulmonic position 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 or previously implanted valve in the pulmonic position with a clinical indication for intervention. In addition patients with dysfunctional THV will be enrolled in a separate registry.
