Today, it is widely accepted that the pulmonary autograft should be reinforced when used as a root in the Ross operation. Various techniques using a vascular conduit have been reported. Herein is described an alternative technique, using a polyester mesh, that was applied in a 15-year-old boy with recurrent congenital stenosis. The advantages of using a mesh rather than a solid vascular prosthesis are discussed.
