PMID:  8605429     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
We report the implantation of a fresh, stentless pulmonary homograft in the mitral position as an attempt to treat the 2nd recurrence of prosthetic endocarditis in a 66-year-old man. The postoperative course was uneventful; early postoperative transesophageal echocardiography showed a competent valve with a gradient of 4.2 mmHg. Fifteen months postoperatively, transthoracic echocardiography showed a good functioning homograft with a competent valve and no recurrence of endocarditis.
