Pericardial patch valve in the tricuspid position in an infant


Sreeram, N; Ben Mime, L; Bennink, G (2011). Pericardial patch valve in the tricuspid position in an infant. Cardiology in the Young, 21(4):458-459.

Abstract

A 10-month-old infant with severe tricuspid valve disease due to staphylococcal bacterial endocarditis, underwent surgical replacement of the valve. The new valve was fashioned using an autologous pericardial patch. Over 3 years of follow-up, the new valve has functioned satisfactorily, with moderately elevated right atrial pressure.
