Extracardiac conduits in the form of allografts and synthetic tubes containing heterograft valves have been used widely in the management of ventricular outflow abnormalities and for establishing ventriculoarterial continuity. These procedures are limited by long-term calcification as well as by formation of neointimal peel, necessitating reoperation. In an effort to continue the search for an alternative conduit, we designed and evaluated a valved sinus-bearing conduit fashioned out of autologous pericardium treated with glutaraldehyde. The construction of the conduit is described. The results of implantation of these conduits in 12 sheep showed no progression of gradients, fresh regurgitation, or evidence of wall or cusp calcification 9 months after implantation.
