BACKGROUND Autograft regurgitation and root dilatation after the Ross procedure is of major concern. We reviewed data from the German Ross Registry to document the development of autograft regurgitation and root dilatation with time and also to compare 2 different techniques of autograft implantation. METHODS AND RESULTS Between 1990 and 2006 1014 patients (786 men, 228 women; mean age 41.2+/-15.3 years) underwent the Ross procedure using 2 different implantation techniques (subcoronary, n… CONTINUE READING
