Tissue Valve Replacement for Severe Calcified Pulmonary Stenosis: First time in BSMMU
Pulmonary valve replacement for pulmonary regurgitation is a common practise. Pulmonary stenosis relief or after release of right ventricular outflow tract obstruction, progressive pulmonary regurgitation leading to biventricular failure is a big problem. If early pulmonary valve replacement done by homograft or tissue valve then we can overcome this problem. In our case report we have done pulmonary valve replacement by Edward life science Tissue valve for calcified pulmonary valve. And our patient showed a good response after valve replacement.
