Pediheart Podcast #101: Pulmonary Homograft Versus Bioprosthetic Valves In Tetralogy Of Fallot Pediheart: Pediatric Cardiology Today

    • Health & Fitness

This week we review a recent large single center study comparing pulmonary homografts to bioprosthetic valves in the TOF patient requiring valve replacement. Is there a superior choice? Who is a better candidate for one versus the other? Which is technically easier to use and why? Who would benefit from an aortic vs. pulmonary homograft in this pulmonary position? We speak with Professor Massimo Caputo of the Bristol Heart Institute who answers these and other questions related to this important surgical paper this week. doi: 10.1161/JAHA.119.013654
