Abstract

An increasing number of patients will require pulmonary valve replacement following repair of tetralogy of Fallot. Most of these patients have a history of surgical repair with a transannular patch (ie, pulmonary valve not preserved). Ten to twenty years after the initial repair, severe pulmonary regurgitation results in right ventricular dilation and dysfunction. There are multiple prosthetic valve options and techniques to use when performing pulmonary valve replacements. Herein, we describe our technique of bioprosthetic pulmonary valve replacement.
