Background: Transcatheter pulmonary valves (TPVs) are feasible and much less invasive options for surgical right ventricular outflow tract (RVOT) repair or valve replacement in patients with degeneration of the pulmonary valve bioprosthesis or RVOT conduit failure. In 2005, the first Sapien valve was implanted in the pulmonic position, and proceeding In March 2016, the Food and Drug Administration approved the SAPIEN valve (Edwards Lifesciences) for use in malfunctioning RVOT conduits. Material and method: We describe the first ten cases of TPV-in-valve procedure conducted in our center, along with the patients' prior surgical history, procedural details, and their clinical and echocardiographic data. Result and conclusion: Our data provided safety and efficacy of transcatheter valve-in-valve procedure in degenerated pulmonary bioprotheses and our follow-up proved durability of this procedure.
