Melody® Transcatheter Pulmonary Valve Therapy offers children and adults with failing pulmonary valve conduits a revolutionary option for treating pulmonary valve conduit failure without open heart surgery.

With Melody TPV Therapy, a catheter (a thin, hollow tube) holding a specially designed heart valve is inserted into a vein in the leg and guided to the heart. The heart valve is attached to a stent (wire frame) that expands with help of a balloon to push the blocked pulmonary conduit open.
