18-year-old male, 60 kg


Stenosis of right ventricular-pulmonary artery conduit (homograft) after surgical correction of Tetralogy of Fallot.


Patient was in general anesthetic and his arms were fixed beside the head. For the syngo DynaCT Cardiac run the artificial respiration was intermittently stopped to enable best imaging.


The three-dimensional imaging of the coronary arteries and the inflated balloon in the conduit helped to decide whether a transcatheter insertion of a Melody® Valve without coronary compression was possible. An injection of 25 cc contrast medium was adequate for complete imaging during the whole procedure and syngo DynaCT Cardiac 3D reconstruction.
