Ross Procedure

A Ross Procedure is surgery of the aortic valve that replaces a diseased or malformed aortic valve with the patient’s pulmonary valve. The pulmonary valve is removed from the heart. The pulmonary valve will be used to replace the diseased aortic valve. The pulmonary valve is then replaced with a donor valve or with a synthetic conduit graft with a valve.
