Abstract

The need for reoperation remains a principal limitation of the Ross procedure and most commonly includes replacement of the neo-aortic valve. We describe the use of a valve-sparing procedure in a patient with progressive dilatation of the pulmonary autograft and the remaining native ascending aorta and mild regurgitation of the neo-aortic valve.
