“What About Ross Procedure Reoperations for the Aortic & Pulmonary Valves?” asks Joe

Given the renewed interest for the Ross Procedure – from patients in our community – I’m getting lots of excellent questions about this advanced form of aortic valve replacement. For example, Joe asked me, “Is it more common for the aortic valve or pulmonary valve to fail?” and “If the aortic or pulmonary valve fails, can a transcatheter valve replace the failing valve without an open-heart procedure?”
To answer Joe’s questions, I interviewed Dr. Michael Ibrahim, a leading heart surgeon at Penn Medicine Heart and Vascular Center, who has performed over 2,000 heart valve operations.

Many thanks to Dr. Michael Ibrahim for educating our patient community about Ross Procedure reoperations!
