Lehner, Anja; Kantzis, Marinos and Haas, Nikolaus A. (2018): Edwards Sapien XT (R) pulmonic valve compression after resuscitation and successful redilatation. In: Catheterization and Cardiovascular Interventions, Vol. 92, No. 3: pp. 522-525

Despite the increasing use of percutaenous valves, little is known about valve performance after external chest compression. We report a case of a compressed pulmonary Edwards Sapien (R) XT valve after resuscitation. With the patient on ECMO, successful redilatation was performed with unimpaired postprocedural valve function. We aim to increase the awareness for valve distortion after external chest compression with increasing numbers of transcatheter valvulations. We suggest that immediate re-evaluation of the implanted device via biplane fluoroscopy is mandatory after resuscitation in such cases.
