The Harmony Valve study is for patients in need of pulmonary valve replacement. The HarmonyTM Valve is a transcatheter pulmonary valve specifically designed for patients in need of a pulmonary valve replacement who do not want to have to undergo surgery. Surgical placement of a new valve is the most common treatment for a nonworking pulmonary valve, however, there are many risks associated with open heart surgery and it is followed by months of recovery. A less invasive approach for treatment is now available by placement of a pulmonary valve by a transcatheter procedure. The HarmonyTM Valve has not been approved by the FDA yet for commercial use and is only available by participating in the study.
