Abstract

Valvular pulmonic stenosis has been successfully treated in dogs via minimally invasive transcatheter balloon dilation procedures for almost 20 years. Supravalvular pulmonic stenosis however is not amenable to balloon dilation procedures. Although several surgical procedures are described for treatment of pulmonic stenosis, the morbidity and mortality of these procedures are significantly higher than for transcatheter approaches. Two cases of supravalvular pulmonic stenosis are presented, one acquired and one congenital, which were successfully treated with transcatheter intravascular stent placement. The procedure alleviated the stenotic lesion and resolved clinical signs.
