In brief: Probably none needed
If born this way, there probably is nothing that absolutely needs to be done because of an absent pulmonic valve per se.
The valve adds to efficient function of the "right" (vs. Left) sided heart chambers, but the heart may compensate by itself. Any active intervention may be fraught with more risk than benefit, but consulting a pediatric cardiologist is prudent to confirm this & get best advice.

Absent pulmonary valve or pulmonary valve atresia? These are different conditions.
