To demonstrate the safety and effectiveness of the Edwards Alterra Adaptive Prestent in conjunction with the Edwards SAPIEN 3 Transcatheter Heart Valve (THV) System in subjects with a dysfunctional right ventricular outflow tract/pulmonary valve (RVOT/PV) who are indicated for treatment of pulmonary regurgitation (PR).

Following completion of enrollment, subjects will be eligible for enrollment in the continued access phase of the trial.

You CAN'T join if...

  1. Active infection requiring current antibiotic therapy (if temporary illness, patient may be a candidate 2 weeks after discontinuation of antibiotics).
  2. History of or active endocarditis (active treatment with antibiotics) within the past 180 days.
  3. Leukopenia (WBC < 2000 cells/μL), anemia (Hgb < 7 g/dL), thrombocytopenia (platelets < 50,000 cells/μL) or any known blood clotting disorder.
  4. Inappropriate anatomy for introduction and delivery of the Alterra Adaptive Prestent or the SAPIEN 3 THV.
  5. Need for concomitant atrial septal defect or ventricular septal defect closure or other concomitant interventional procedures other than pulmonary artery or branch pulmonary artery stenting or angioplasty
  6. Interventional/surgical procedures within 30 days prior to the Alterra or valve implant procedure
  7. Any planned surgical, percutaneous coronary or peripheral procedure to be performed within the 30 day follow-up from the Alterra or valve implant procedure
  8. History of or current intravenous drug use
  9. Major or progressive non-cardiac disease resulting in a life expectancy of less than one year

    10. Known hypersensitivity to aspirin or heparin and cannot be treated with other

    antiplatelet and/or antithrombotic medications

    11. Known hypersensitivity to nitinol, cobalt-chromium, nickel or contrast media that

    cannot be adequately pre-medicated

    12. Currently participating in an investigational drug or another device study [Note:

    Trials requiring extended follow up for products that were investigational, but have since become commercially available, are not considered investigational devices.]

    13. Positive urine or serum pregnancy test in female patients of child-bearing potential 14. Renal insufficiency (creatinine > 3.0 mg/dL) and/or renal replacement therapy
