Modified Ross procedure with stentless bioprosthesis and pericardial xenograft for the right ventricular outflow tract
- 27 Downloads
A 31-year-old man with severe aortic regurgitation due to a defective bicuspid valve underwent surgery using modified Ross procedure. The right ventricular outflow tract (RVOT) was reconstructed with a 25 mm stentless xenograft valve sutured with a rolled equine pericardium. Oozy bleeding from the RVOT was controlled with an autologous pericardial patch and fibrin glue. Postoperative echocardiography showed no aortic regurgitation. No blood transfusion was required.
