Abstract

In the first 4 years after pulmonary implantation of small-diameter Contegras and homografts, the fate of both conduits was statistically similar, in spite of different behavior. As Contegras is 'off-the-shelf' available, it constitutes a sound alternative to homograft for right ventricular outflow tract reconstruction in neonates and infants.
