Answer

RV-to-PA conduit intervention is reasonable for adults with RV-to-PA conduit and moderate or greater PR or moderate or greater stenosis with reduced functional capacity or arrhythmia.

RV-to-PA conduit intervention may be reasonable for asymptomatic adults with RV-to-PA conduit and severe stenosis or severe regurgitation with reduced RV ejection fraction or RV dilatation.
