A diminutive pulmonary artery and right ventricular outflow tract in a 46-year-old woman with a 10-year history of carcinoid syndrome required transannular pulmonary patch enlargement to allow replacement of the pulmonary and tricuspid valves with bioprostheses. The avoidance of anticoagulation permitted further hepatic arterial embolization without an increased risk of bleeding.
