    Abstract

    Wheatley, D. J., Prusty, S., and Ross, D. N. (1974).Thorax, 29, 617-623. Reconstruction of right ventricular outflow with a valved homograft conduit. Since 1966 a conduit of homograft ascending aorta with its valve has been used for reconstruction of the right ventricular outflow. This technique has been applied to 123 operations for pulmonary autograft replacement of the aortic valve, 48 operations for correction of severe Fallot's tetralogy or pulmonary atresia, five operations for truncus arteriosus, two operations for transposition of the great arteries with ventricular septal defect, and six operations for tricuspid atresia or common ventricle. Ease of insertion and satisfactory function have encouraged us in the use of this form of conduit.
