Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Xeltis Bioabsorbable Pulmonary Valved Conduit

The Bioabsorbable Pulmonary Valved Conduit bio-absorbable, polymer-based medical device.

The PV conduit is used in patients for correction or reconstruction of the Right Ventricular Outflow Tract (RVOT), in patients less than 22 years with any of the following congenital heart malformations:

  • Tetralogy of Fallot
  • Truncus Arteriosus
  • Pulmonary Atresia
  • Transposition of Great Arteries with Ventricular Septal Defect
  • Pulmonary Stenosis in combination with other defects in congenital heart defect (CHD) syndromes

In addition, the PV conduit can be used for the following indications:

  • replacement of previously implanted, but dysfunctional, pulmonary homografts or valved conduits (except for mechanical valves, see exclusion criterion 3).
  • Patients undergoing a Ross procedure, where the PV conduit would replace the patient's own pulmonary valve which is used to replace a diseased aortic valve.
Device: Xeltis Bioabsorbable Pulmonary Valved Conduit
Surgical implantation of Xeltis Bioabsorbable Pulmonary Valved Conduit

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Composite rate of events of device related death, re-operation or re-intervention at 12 months follow-up. [ Time Frame: 12 months ]
    Measured once all 12 month follow up visits have been completed

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Overall rate of device related death due to device failure at 6 months follow up post implantation. [ Time Frame: 6 months ]
    Measured once all 6 month follow up visits have been completed

  2. Overall rate of mortality at 60 months follow up post implantation. [ Time Frame: 60 months ]
    Measured once all 60 months follow up visits have been completed

  3. Overall rate of subjects who require reoperation or re-intervention due to device failure 12 months. [ Time Frame: 12 months ]
    Measured once all 12 month follow upvisits have been completed .

  4. Overall rate of subjects with a mean pressure gradient across the area of conduit implantation of less than 40 mm Hg at 6 and 12 months follow up. [ Time Frame: 6 and 12 months ]
    Measured by echography at 6 and 12 months follow up.

  5. Overall rate of subjects with pulmonary regurgitation of equal or less than moderate at 6 and 12 months follow up. [ Time Frame: 6 and 12 months ]
    Measured by echography at 6 and 12 months follow up.

Other Outcome Measures:
  1. Measurement of growth of conduit in pediatric population measured at 6, 36, 48 and 60 months. A competent valve with increased valve diameter in age groups < 18 years in correlation with the increased body surface area. [ Time Frame: Up to 60 months ]
    Measured with echocardiography at 6, 36, 48 and 60 months follow up.

  2. Overall satisfaction of the implanting surgeon of the implantation procedure of the Bio-absorbable pulmonary valve conduit [ Time Frame: Day 0 - Implant ]
    Measured with a questionnaire given to the implanting surgeon at the time of implantation of the pulmonary valve conduit.
