Long-Term Outcomes of the Ross Procedure versus Mechanical Aortic Valve Replacement: Propensity-Matched Cohort Study – Circulation

Conclusions -Long-term survival and freedom from re-intervention were comparable between the Ross procedure and mechanical AVR. However, the Ross procedure was associated with improved freedom from cardiac and valve-related mortality as well as a significant reduction in the incidence of stroke and major bleeding. In specialized centers, the Ross procedure represents an excellent option and should be considered for young and middle-aged adults undergoing AVR.
