Aortic valve reconstruction of unicuspid aortic valve by tricuspidization using autologous pericardium.


BACKGROUND Unicuspid aortic valve is a rare anatomic variant, but patients may require intervention for severe valve dysfunction at a young age. We introduce a new reconstructive technique for diseased unicuspid valve by tricuspidization with glutaraldehyde-treated autologous pericardium.
