BACKGROUND AND AIM OF THE STUDY Decellularized xenogeneic pulmonary valves have been introduced for right ventricular outflow tract (RVOT) reconstruction in congenital heart disease. In the present study, the intermediate-term results from three institutions were analyzed. METHODS Between January 2006 and September 2008, a total of 61 patients (median age 7 years; range: 9 days to 50 years; median body weight 21 kg; range: 1.9-140 kg) underwent RVOT reconstruction with either the Matrix P (n… CONTINUE READING
