Abstract

Dilation of the pulmonary autograft after the Ross procedure may occur because of an intrinsic abnormality of the pulmonary root in patients with congenital aortic valve disease. The technique of aortic root replacement is associated with a higher risk of dilation of the sinuses of Valsalva and sinotubular junction than the technique of aortic root inclusion.
