Abstract

Pulmonary artery (PA) stenosis represents a heterogeneous defect with a wide morphology and etiology. Interventions to treat PA stenosis should be based on the location, severity, and cause of stenosis as well as the size of the patient at presentation. Specialized dilation balloons, stents, and delivery techniques have been developed to treat a variety of PA stenoses in small infants through adulthood. Early and intermediate results of angioplasty and stenting are superior to surgical results, while long-term data on angioplasty and stenting are becoming available for these proven safe and effective techniques.
