Catheter-based interventions on pulmonary arteries

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Branch pulmonary artery stenosis is a common lesion in congenital heart disease. It occurs as an isolated lesion or in association with other defects such as pulmonary atresia, transposition of the great arteries, and tetralogy of Fallot. It occurs congenitally or acquired postoperatively. This chapter discusses the anatomy, the decision-making process, the technical details, the outcomes, and further developments of catheter-based interventions on pulmonary arteries.
