Title: Pulmonary valve cusp augmentation for pulmonary regurgitation after repair of valvular pulmonary stenosis
Biography: Hong Ju Shin
A 23-year-old female patient with a history of pulmonary valvectomy for pulmonary stenosis at 2 years of age underwent pulmonary valve repair, which consisted of remnant cusp extension using a fresh pericardium and commissural resuspension. An immediate postoperative computed tomographic scan showed full movement of the extended anterior cusp during systole, yet flail motion during diastole. However, follow-up magnetic resonance imaging at 10 months postoperatively revealed a small amount of pulmonary flow regurgitation (2.0%).
