Currently aortic valve replacement is performed for patients with severe aortic stenosis and symptoms or objective pathophysiologic consequences such as left ventricular dysfunction. For transcatheter mitral valve interventions, the complex pathophysiology of mitral regurgitation with varying causes along with challenging imaging and delivery issues has led to slower than anticipated clinical introduction. Transcatheter pulmonary valve intervention was primarily designed to treat the difficult problem of right ventricular to pulmonary artery conduit stenosis in the congenital population. These techniques are reviewed in this article.
