Abstract

Congenital pulmonary valve stenosis (PVS) is a common congenital heart defect. In the infancy of cardiac surgery, open surgical valvotomy or closed surgical transventricular pulmonary valvotomy (Brock procedure) were the mainstays of therapy. We report the longest-known published follow-up of two women who as young children underwent pulmonary valvotomy for PVS and subsequent uncomplicated open pulmonary valve replacement over 60 years later.
