Congenital: Aortic Valve
Congenital aortic and truncal valve reconstruction using the Ozaki technique: Short-term clinical resultsAortic valve reconstruction (AVRec) with neocuspidization or the Ozaki procedure with complete cusp replacement for aortic valve disease has excellent mid-term results in adults. Limited results of AVRec in pediatric patients have been reported. We report our early outcomes of the Ozaki procedure for congenital aortic and truncal valve disease.
Outcomes after mechanical aortic valve replacement in children and young adults with congenital heart diseaseThere are little recent data on the outcomes of mechanical aortic valve replacement (AVR) in children and young adults with congenital aortic valve disease. We sought to review the survival and associated thromboembolic or bleeding complications after mechanical AVR at a single center.
