Congenital: Aortic Valve
- The Ross procedure is an important tool that offers autologous tissue repair for severe left ventricular outflow tract (LVOT) pathology. Previous reports show that risk of mortality is highest among neonates and infants. We analyzed our institutional experience within this patient cohort to identify factors that most affect clinical outcome.
- We aimed to assess the long-term outcomes of children with isolated congenital aortic stenosis who underwent primary aortic valve repair.
- We aimed to assess outcomes after aortic valve repair leading to bicuspid valve anatomy in children.
- We aimed to assess the long-term outcomes of children in whom the aortic valve could be repaired without the use of patch material. We hypothesized that if the aortic valve is of sufficiently good quality to perform repair without patches, a durable repair could be achieved.
