Recycling of the Pulmonary Autograft During Reverse Ross Operation: From Pulmonary Valve to Neoaortic Valve and Back


Schmiady, Martin; Bettex, Dominique; Hübler, Michael; Schweiger, Martin (2019). Recycling of the Pulmonary Autograft During Reverse Ross Operation: From Pulmonary Valve to Neoaortic Valve and Back. World Journal for Pediatric and Congenital Heart Surgery, 10(2):242-244.

Abstract

The Ross operation is the operation of choice for children and young adults who require aortic valve replacement. Although the allograft does not require anticoagulation and has a superior hemodynamic profile compared to other valve substitutes, concerns regarding allograft and autograft longevity have risen in the last decade. We present a case illustrating an alternative operative technique for patients with failed Ross procedure in which the autograft is recycled in order to avoid a two-allograft replacement.
