Abstract

We report on successful endovascular retrieval of an accidentally flared Melody valve in an adult patient with an indication for percutaneous pulmonary valve implantation. The Melody valve was removed through a 24 F sheath, introduced via the right jugular vein, and the urgent open-heart surgery was avoided.
