Perceived health after percutaneous pulmonary valve implantation: in-depth interviews of patients and next-of-kin.

Andresen B, Andersen MH, Lindberg H, Døhlen G, Fosse E - BMJ Open (2014)

Bottom Line: The technique may reduce the number of open-chest surgeries in these patients.The physical burden was experienced as minor after the minimally invasive intervention, compared to their previous experience with surgical procedures.The novel technique of pulmonary valve implantation is thus a favourable approach because of minor interference in daily life.
