Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A modified technique to repair aortic valve is described. The technique consists of tailored extension of the old valve leaflets with gluteraldehyde treated autologous pericardium. The technique has excellent intermediate results and is an alternative to valve replacement in pediatric patients. Copyright 1999 by W.B. Saunders Company
