PMID:  9485259     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Use of autologous tissue in corrective cardiac operations offers many advantages including the potential for growth. We report a surgical technique using autologous pulmonary artery in the repair of supravalvar aortic stenosis in a 6-year-old child. At 30 months' follow-up, the pulmonary arterial tissue shows no evidence of calcification or dilatation and appears to be growing with the aorta.
