Eligibility Criteria

All participants at least 19 years old.

Inclusion Criteria: - Symptomatic with a regurgitant or stenotic pulmonary valved conduit. Exclusion Criteria: - Angiographic evidence of coronary artery compression. - RV-PA pulmonary conduit size that is either too large or too small to accommodate the SAPIEN THV. - Thrombus or intracardiac mass in the right atrium, right ventricle, and/or pulmonic valve. - Severe coagulation problems and/or unable to tolerate anticoagulation/antiplatelet therapy. - Active bacterial endocarditis or other active infections. - Illeofemoral venous stenosis that may prevent the placement of the introducer sheath and/or central venous vascular tortuosities that may prevent advancement of the delivery system to the heart or into the pulmonary artery. - Presence of any prosthetic valve in the tricuspid position. - Unstable coronary artery disease-related angina. - Placement of the SAPIEN THV in pregnant females.
