Current Environment:


This is a multi-center prospective, single-arm, non-randomized, pivotal study that will continue to access the feasibility of the Xeltis Bioabsorbable Pulmonary Valved Conduit in subjects requiring right ventricular outflow tract correction or reconstruction due to congenital heart malformations.


Heart Defect, Congenital
