Abstract

Introduction: Balloon angioplasty has been successfully used to dilate vascular
obstructions. However, its value in some conditions such as supravalvular pulmonary
stenosis is still controversial. Although some surgical techniques have been reported
to achieve acceptable short- and long-term successes, they are invasive and technically
challenging and may result in higher morbidity and mortality compared to percutaneous
procedures.
Case Presentation: Successful balloon dilatation was reported for two patients with
supravalvular stenosis. One of them had supravalvular pulmonary stenosis developed
after pulmonary artery debanding and the second one had supravalvular pulmonary
stenosis due to an obstructive congenital web at that site.
Conclusions: The use of balloon dilatation to treat supravalvular pulmonary stenosis is
still controversial. However, experiences in two patients showed successful results.
