Ali Khan MA, Yousef SA, Mullins CE. Percutaneous transluminal balloon pulmonary valvuloplasty for the relief of pulmonary valve stenosis with special reference to double-balloon technique.

A gradient of 80 mm Hg across the pulmonary valve was measured. Angiography revealed a doming pulmonary valve with a narrowed orifice and infundibular hypertrophy. The main pulmonary artery was massively dilated, measuring 6 cm (Fig. 4). Valvuloplasty was performed successfully by using a double-balloon technique. Post-procedure, the peak-to-peak transvalvular gradient was 14 mm Hg with a late-peaking dynamic gradient of 10 mm Hg (Fig. 5). The procedure was performed without complications, and the patient continues to do well, without hemodynamically significant pulmonary insufficiency, 1 year later.

Children with Down syndrome have a 40% incidence of congenital heart disease, and approximately 40% of these children will have an AVSD. Chest radiographs typically demonstrate cardiomegaly and increased pulmonary vascularity consistent with the large left-to-right shunt. Electrocardiographs typically demonstrate a superior frontal plane axis (extreme left-axis deviation) and voltage criteria for ventricular hypertrophy. Children with complete AVSD usually have surgical repair at 3–6 months of age, depending on issues with growth and development.
