In brief: Depends on severity

Many cases of pulmonary stenosis are mild and require no treatment.
For more significant stenosis, a balloon catheter is used to stretch open the valve. Infrequently surgery may be required to repair or replace the valve.

In brief: Valvuloplasty

You can either open it with a catheter and a balloon or do an open operation.
