PMID:  3828889     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
A patient who received one of the first homograft valves in Canada in 1965 is presented. Recent assessment including cardiac catheterization has shown that the valve is functioning well after 21 years. The patient is presented for historic interest, since this may be one of the longest functioning homograft valves.
