Novel valve replacement with an extracellular matrix scaffold in an infant with single ventricle physiology.

Abstract

Valve replacement in children with functionally univentricular hearts remains challenging. The absence of small prostheses, the lack of growth, and the need for anticoagulation limit these procedures. We describe a 1-year follow-up of an extracellular matrix scaffold tube used as systemic atrio-ventricular valve in an infant.
