The Ross Procedure is a Safe and Durable Option in Adults With Infective Endocarditis: A Multicenter Study
Chauvette et al. present a multicenter study on the outcome of Ross procedure in adults with infective endocarditis. In their cohort of patients at five centers within Canada and the US, the authors observed an excellent mid-term outcome. The complication rate was low, showing one case of stroke (3%) and 13% cumulative incidence of endocarditis recurrence at eight years. Therefore, the authors conclude the Ross procedure as a safe and reasonable option for selected patients.
