n Cardiovascular Journal of Africa - Five-year follow up of Konno aortoventriculoplasty for repeat aortic valve replacement in an adult patient : case report




Konno aortoventriculoplasty (AVP) is performed for various types of left ventricular outflow tract obstruction. We report on a 32-year-old woman who had undergone double valve replacement five years earlier. She presented with increased interventricular septum thickness, small aortic root and gradient across the aortic mechanical valve. We performed Konno AVP with repeat aortic valve replacement (AVR). The control echocardiography showed no significant residual gradient. Konno AVP with repeat AVR may be safely performed with satisfactory results.
