Pulmonary Valve: Quick and easy planning of Percutaneous Pulmonary Valve Implantation (PPVI) procedures
Congenital Heart Disease is a defect in the heart that is present at birth. In a group of these patients the pulmonary valve does not function properly and the valve needs to be replaced. As a prosthetic valve only has a limited lifespan these valves need to be replaced a number of times during a lifetime. Percutaneous Pulmonary Valve Implantation (PPVI) has been developed to make the procedure less invasive. 3mensio Pulmonary Valve is a dedicated workflow to plan PPVI. The automatic segmentation gives a quick overview of the patient’s anatomy. Different features enable for the assessment of the surrounding structures and the planning of a stent and valve.
- Dimensions of the pulmonary trunk and pulmonary arteries
- Dimensions in systole and diastole
- Relationship between Pulmonary trunk and coronary arteries
- Device placement using virtual device
- Optimal C-arm position
