Aortic valve repair
Aortic valve repair is a surgical procedure used to correct some aortic valve disorders as an alternative to aortic valve replacement. Aortic valve repair is performed less often and is more technically difficult than mitral valve repair. There are two surgical techniques of aortic-valve repair:
- The Reimplantation-Technique (David-Procedure)
- The Remodeling-Technique (Yacoub-Procedure)
Tricuspid valve repair
Tricuspid valve repair is used to correct tricuspid regurgitation.
