A 28-year-old gentleman with ventricular septal defect (VSD), double-chambered right ventricle (DCRV) with associated right ventricular outflow tract obstruction, and anomalous right coronary artery (RCA) underwent resection of the DCRV, trans-aortic VSD repair, and unroofing of anomalous RCA. Two years later, he returned with delayed presentation of VSD flow funnel related aortic cusp prolapse and symptomatic severe aortic regurgitation. He underwent reoperative valve-sparing aortic root replacement and aortic cusp repair with an excellent outcome.

Postoperative pseudoaneurysm of the left ventricular outflow tract is a rare but potentially lethal complication in patients after valve-sparing root replacement. We report a case of postoperative lef...
Valve-sparing aortic root replacement is one of the effective repairs for aortic regurgitation resulting from progressive dilatation of the aortic root late after surgical correction of conotruncal an...
Standard therapy for aortic root dilation in the setting of bicuspid aortic valves remains use of a composite valve conduit. The long-term durability of valve sparing root replacement (VSRR) in bicusp...
Valve-sparing aortic root replacement (VSARR) is an increasingly popular alternative to traditional aortic root replacement for aortic root aneurysm disease with a normal aortic valve. We evaluated...
Quadricuspid aortic valves are rare congenital malformations. Although aortic valve replacement is the first-choice treatment in most cases, aortic valve repair using a tricuspidization procedure has ...
This study was designed to evaluate the hypothesis that the operative and midterm results of valve-sparing aortic root replacement are equivalent to those of the Bentall. Objective 1: ...
The progress in surgery of the aortic root and the evolution of transcatheter aortic valve replacement as an alternative to surgical treatment in selected patients have refocused the need ...
The primary objective of the CAVIAAR study is to prove that aortic valve sparing is associated with a 50% increase of 3 years-survival rate without increased mortality or serious increased...
Aortic valve disease is a progressive illness that varies from minor valve thickening lacking obstruction of blood stream to severe calcification and alteration of the valve leading to wea...
This study evaluates the MValve mitral prosthesis in conjunction with a Lotus transcatheter heart valve (THV) for mitral valve replacement in subjects at high risk for conventional mitral ...
Surgical treatment for severe AORTIC VALVE STENOSIS. Transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) is used as an alternative option in patients who are deemed at high risk or inoperable for traditional open-heart surgery.
A type of heart valve surgery that involves the repair, replacement, or reconstruction of the annulus of the MITRAL VALVE. It includes shortening the circumference of the annulus to improve valve closing capacity and reinforcing the annulus as a step in more complex valve repairs.
A type of heart valve surgery that involves the repair, replacement, or reconstruction of the annuli of HEART VALVES. It includes shortening the circumference of the annulus to improve valve closing capacity and reinforcing the annulus as a step in more complex valve repairs.
Pathological condition characterized by the backflow of blood from the ASCENDING AORTA back into the LEFT VENTRICLE, leading to regurgitation. It is caused by diseases of the AORTIC VALVE or its surrounding tissue (aortic root).
Abnormal protrusion of one or more of the leaflets of TRICUSPID VALVE into the RIGHT ATRIUM during SYSTOLE. This allows the backflow of blood into right atrium leading to TRICUSPID VALVE INSUFFICIENCY; SYSTOLIC MURMURS. Its most common cause is not primary valve abnormality but rather the dilation of the RIGHT VENTRICLE and the tricuspid annulus.
