Dehiscence of a pulmonary bioprosthesis with a focal dissection of the pulmonary artery in a patient with congenital pulmonic stenosis.

Abstract

Pulmonary valve replacement (PVR) is the most common adult congenital cardiac operation performed. Valve degeneration leading to prosthetic stenosis and/or regurgitation is a long-term risk in this population and may be associated with paravalvular leak (PVL). Complications involving the proximal pulmonary artery, including dissection, are less clearly… (More)
