OBJECTIVES The aims of this study were to assess the prevalence and incidence of aortic valve regurgitation (AR) after arterial switch operation (ASO), its outcome, and the risk factors. BACKGROUND After an ASO, the long-term fate of the aortic valve is a concern as follow-up lengthens. METHODS Operative and follow-up data on 1,156 hospital survivors after ASOs between 1982 and December 2000 were reviewed. RESULTS At last follow-up (mean duration 76.2 +/- 60.5 months), 172 patients (14.9… CONTINUE READING
