Abstract

Use of the autologous pulmonary valve for replacement of a diseased aortic valve (Ross procedure) was introduced in the late 1960s but has gained widespread use only in the last 10 to 15 years. Part of the reason for the delay in acceptance of this surgical procedure has been its perceived complexity. We describe herein the technical aspects of the Ross procedure as it is performed at our surgical service.
