I selected the Ross Procedure for my aortic valve replacement surgery. As a result, I had a double heart valve replacement surgery that used my own pulmonary heart valve (an autograft) as the aortic valve replacement. Then, a human donor valve (a homograft) was positioned in my pulmonary heart valve position. To learn more about the Ross Procedure, click here.
Dear Cheryl B: Our son recently had double valve replacement at age 37 (you can read about it in recent posts, John Turan). The very first time anyone talked to us about surgery regarding his bicuspid aortic valve, he was 17 and it was at the Mayo Clinic. They spoke about mechanical valves. It wasn’t necessary that the valve be replaced then, but I will never forget how our son wanted to know why they couldn’t do it “right now” so he could “get on” with his busy, sporty life.
