The ATS valve in children
After the German reunification and the reconstruction of the Martin Luther University at Halle, a new academic cardiac surgical program was launched in May 1994. Since that time, we have performed a total of 665 valve procedures with increasing frequency. We routinely used with the exception of rare cases with contraindications to anticoagulation only mechanical valves of the bileaflet type.
