Abstract/OtherAbstract:
We report an extremely rare case of deformity of the pulmonary sinus of Valsalva with pulmonary valvular stenosis 42 years after a pulmonary annular-sparing operation for tetralogy of Fallot. Aortic regurgitation with deformity of the sinus is also noted. At the previous operation, the right ventricular outflow tract was augmented by a prosthetic subvalvular patch. Through the years, the pulmonary valve and sinus were distorted because the patch was pulled over toward the right ventricle.
