Percutaneous pulmonary valve implantation (PPVI) has been established as a valuable treatment option for elder children and adolescents with conduit failure in the right ventricular outflow tract (RVOT). Transcatheter valve implantation in the tricuspid position is restriced to single case reports. A 26 year-old male initially diagnosed with tetralogy of Fallot and hypoplastic pulmonary arteries hitherto underwent a total of 5 open chest procedures including tricuspid valve replacement with a bioprosthesis and a pulmonary homograft exchange. He now presented with severe right heart failure due to a degenerated pulmonary homograft and calcified, severely stenotic tricuspid bioprosthesis with markedly dilated and reduced RV function. We report on the first successful percutaneous transcatheter double valve replacement using two Melody valves in the pulmonary and tricuspid position, respectively. © 2011 Wiley-Liss, Inc.
