The Ross Procedure Leads to Improved Survival in Adults Undergoing Aortic Valve Surgery

Study shows better outcomes and fewer complications compared to mechanical or biological aortic valve replacement

The “Ross procedure” may be a more favorable option for aortic valve replacement among patients under 50 years old than more standard mechanical or biological replacements, according to a new study from The Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City.

The research led by Ismail El-Hamamsy, MD, PhD, Mount Sinai Randall B. Griepp, MD Professor of Cardiovascular Surgery at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai and Director of Aortic Surgery for the Mount Sinai Health System, published in the February 21 issue of the Journal of American College of Cardiology, is the first to compare the Ross procedure to the other options, and shows that it leads to improved survival and better outcomes in younger adults.
