Hyperacute flash pulmonary oedema after transcatheter pulmonary valve implantation: The melody of an overwhelmed left ventricle.Arch Cardiovasc Dis. 2014 Apr; 107(4):219-24.AC
Percutaneous transcatheter Melody Valve implantation has achieved standard of care for the management of certain patients with right ventricular outflow tract dysfunction. With its widespread use, some rare and potentially fatal complications, such as right ventricular outflow tract rupture and coronary artery compression, have been reported. We report hyperacute flash pulmonary oedema after Melody Valve implantation for the first time in two patients and describe some possible predictors.
