BACKGROUND Experience with aortic valve replacement (AVR) with current-generation pericardial bioprostheses in young patients is limited. The death of a child with accelerated bioprosthetic aortic stenosis prompted enhanced surveillance of all such patients at our institution. METHODS AND RESULTS We reviewed records of 27 patients who had undergone AVR (median follow-up, 13.7 months) with a bovine pericardial bioprosthesis at ≤30 years of age. In the Mitroflow LXA valve group (n=15), freedom… CONTINUE READING
