PMID:  8604944     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Although the Ross procedure has been applied successfully to the pediatric age group, it may have its ideal application in the selected infant with critical aortic stenosis and complex left ventricular outflow tract obstruction with adequate ventricular function and size. Two neonates presented with critical aortic stenosis and complex left ventricular outflow tract obstruction, and a combined Ross/Konno procedure was performed successfully. These cases are presented along with a discussion of this topic.
