SummaryWe report the early and late outcome following left-sided mechanical heart valve replacement in children. Between 10/1981 and 02/2001, 27 children (13 male, mean age 7.2 ± 5.2 years, range 0.53–15.7 years) underwent mechanical mitral (MVR 16), aortic (AVR 9) or double valve replacement (DVR 2) with St. Jude Medical valves. Eighteen children (66.7%) had undergone previous cardiac surgery. Valve disease was congenital in 23, due to endocarditis in 2 and rheumatic in 2 patients. Concomitant… CONTINUE READING
