Abstract

Transluminal balloon angioplasty has been increasingly accepted as a nonsurgical technique for dilatation of stenotic arteries in the peripheral, renal, and coronary circulations. In this report the authors describe the successful application of balloon valvuloplasty in an 8-year-old child with isolated congenital stenosis of the pulmonary valve, and give the hemodynamic measurements before the procedure and at follow-up examination 4 months later.
