Congenital pulmonary valvular stenosis was relieved by percutaneous balloon valvuloplasty during cardiac catheterization on 8 children aged 14 months to 8 years. Before dilatation, the transpulmonary systolic pressure gradients ranged from 33 mmHg to 79 mmHg (Mean:52.00 ± 18.16 mmHg). There were significant reduction in the transpulmonic systolic pressure gradients immediate after balloon dilatation (Mean:17.38±11.16mmHg).
