Abstract

This is a description of the first two reported cases of double‐balloon valvuloplasty in the treatment of porcine bioprosthetic valve stenosis in the tricuspid position. In both cases, the double‐balloon technique resulted in a better hemodynamic improvement than single‐balloon valvuloplasty and was well tolerated. Double‐balloon valvuloplasty is a reasonable alternative to surgical replacement of a stenotic bioprosthesis in the tricuspid position.
