The objective of this trial is to assess the safety and effectiveness of the Edwards Pericardial Aortic Bioprosthesis Model 11000A, in the pulmonary position in pediatric and adult subjects five years or older requiring replacement of their native or prosthetic pulmonary valve.


Pulmonary Valve Insufficiency, Pulmonary Valve Degeneration, Congenital Pulmonary Valve Abnormality

Recruitment Status


Detailed Description

This is a prospective, Non-Randomized, Single Arm, Multicenter study. Up to one hundred (100) pulmonary valve replacement (PVR) subjects at up to ten (10) clinical sites will be enrolled. Clinical data will be collected from at least 3 centers with data available on patients who have completed the 1 year follow-up visit. Subjects will be followed for and assessed after implant for up to 5 years.

Eligibility Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

Is greater than or equal to 5 years of age
Subject and/or subject's legal representative has provided written informed consent as approved and required by the respective institutional review board and agrees to its provisions. NOTE: Written consent must be obtained prior to any research related test being performed.

Exclusion criteria:

A subject meeting any of the following criteria shall be excluded:

Valve-in-conduit procedure

Need for concomitant replacement of the aortic, mitral or tricuspid valves
Has presence of non-cardiac disease limiting life expectancy to less than 12 months
Is Currently or has recently participated (within 6 weeks) in another investigational drug or device trial
Positive urine or serum pregnancy test in female subjects of child-bearing potential and/or nursing mothers, or planning to become pregnant within 1 year of study valve implant
Has left ventricular ejection fraction ≤20% as validated by diagnostic procedure prior to screening date
