Abstract

An 8-year-old boy underwent Ross procedure to repair aortic regurgitation and subaortic stenosis. In reconstruction of the right ventricular outflow tract, the raw surface of the right ventricular posterior wall was covered with autologous pericardial patch to prevent bleeding and to confirm the anastomosis of the pulmonary tract conduit made of expanded polytetrafluoroethylene. Bleeding from the posterior wall was absent and he led uneventful postoperative course. Same technique was used in 4 other patients, and satisfactory results were obtained. This technique, first reported from India, seems very useful in Ross procedure.
